    This diploma thesis explores the use of the creative movement teaching method for consolidation of learning content in the first grade of elementary school in the framework of the educational process of after-school services. I was interested in whether I can use the method to consolidate learning content in all subjects; how the use of this teaching method will reflect on the students; what opinions the students, the teacher and the teacher’s aid will have about using the teaching method. In the theoretical part I focused on creative movement in general and its influence on the child's development, the use of creative movement as a teaching method and the characteristics and tasks of after-school services. In the empirical part, I held ten presentations at school, which I then analysed. As a result of the research I found that the creative movement teaching method can be used in all subjects, that its use has many positive effects (e.g. relaxation of students, high level of motivation, high level of focus, positive room atmosphere, strengthening the relationships between students, improving students’ self-esteem, encouraging communication among students, learning on a concrete level, constant intertwining of physical, mental and work activity, easier and more sustainable memorisation of learning contents …) and that students liked to participate in activities including creative movement, seeing them as play instead of learning, relaxing and enjoying every moment. Students especially liked that they were able to play a lot, move and be creative.
