The Power of Nursery Rhymes Training

We all know that nursery rhymes are powerful tools in the early years and can support learning across the EYFS. But do you get stuck using the same songs in the same way? Do you have the confidence to make up your own words and actions to fit with your topics or adapt for your individual children? Do you want new ideas for bringing your rhymes to life with props, puppets and pictures? 

Join Early Years music expert, Polly Ives, for an INSET session packed with inspiration, practical ideas and resources.

Perfect for anyone working with children in the Early Years.

Mabel and Stan Schools' Concerts and project

Following on from the popular Stan and Mabel, Music in the Round are commissioning both the new music by Paul Rissmann and a new story and illustrations by Jason Chapman. With lots of audience participation and image projections from the book, this concert is an ideal way to engage young audiences in top-quality music-making alongside professional musicians and to embed music in children’s everyday learning. 

Music has so many benefits for children’s development and learning, their literacy, numeracy, confidence, self-awareness, and so much more. This project gives you the resources and ideas you need to put music at the heart of your curriculum. It's also a load of fun!

Our accompanying INSET sessions are for ALL teachers and staff involved in the project, led by narrator Polly Ives, will provide training, audio and visual resources, and practical support in how to incorporate the project into your nursery or school’s curriculum. Learn the songs, explore cross-curricular activities for everyday use in the classroom, and develop your skills and confidence in making music.
