The key aim of the series is to provide a resource which will help to fulfil learning objectives of the Early Years Foundation Stage of the National Curriculum - and, in particular, to foster:
· Personal, social and emotional development
· Communication, language and literacy skills
· Physical development
These three key objectives are interwoven in a resource which offers children opportunities to take part in and learn a wide variety of songs, specially-written stories and other material together. The listening experience is accompanied by frequent movement opportunities which serve to develop both fine and gross motor skills while underpinning literacy by encouraging children to link movement with sound and words. By learning simple co-ordination of their bodies, speaking and memorising rhyme and keeping in rhythm to a steady beat children can be actively engaged in developing their literacy skills.
