The stories

Because of my passion for learning through movement and music and the impact it has on the developing brain, I have written all the stories with a movement focus so the children can actively get involved. 

The learning

As well as having a movement or music focus the stories also have a moral e.g. kindness to others, how to overcome exclusion, sharing, caring for each other and the environment, resilience, solving problems, independence, being happy with who you are, having a go, acceptance and choice making. 

There is also rhythm and rhyme in the choice of words and sentence structure of the stories. This enhances the concept of rhythm that is vital not only for singing and music appreciation but for reading.

Repetition of words or movements, paragraphs or sentences throughout the stories all enhance language development, retention of information as well as remembering the sequence of the story.

The stories can be delivered in the form of story-telling, story reading, play acting, the use of imagination and creating part of the story, the use of props, original story books, craft activities, songs, chants, pictures, visual cue cards, music activities or musical instruments. This in turn enhances variety, imagination, creativity and visualization.

Each story has accompanying teaching points, Early Years Learning Framework reference, lists the props and musical instruments required and any extension activities.

The learning is hidden in the fun!
