now>press>play engages all children through emotion, imagination and movement. It helps children to access the curriculum by integrating experiential and kinaesthetic learning into your classroom.
Don’t worry about any extra work, just send us your curriculum and we’ll complete a curriculum fitting for you that maps our Experiences to your curriculum needs.
Your now>press>play Subscription can start at any time of the year.
Each Experience is 1 hour and is structured as follows:
- Warm Up – Fire the imagination and hone listening skills
- Experience – Transport your class to the world of their topic
- Discussion – Time to reflect, share and consolidate learning
- Resource Pack – follow up work for the classroom
The Resource Packs come complete with Literacy lessons that link directly to the Experience:
- Reading Exercises
- Punctuation and Grammar Exercises
- Creative Writing Exercises
- Factual Quiz
The Maths and Literacy Experiences do not have Resource Packs, but instead come complete with differentiated worksheets which the children complete during the Experience.
now>press>play enables you to work with children of all abilities at the same time. Our Literacy and Maths Experiences come with differentiated papers, enabling you to tailor the session to your class’ needs.
now>press>play is a whole class Experience but can also be used with smaller groups for intervention work.
Q. What ages are your Experiences suitable for?
Our Experiences are designed to take place in a large empty space like the school hall so that the children can move around; however, lots of our schools have told us that pushing back tables and chairs in their classroom has also worked well when the hall has been double-booked!
Q. What impact might the headphones have on children’s hearing?
During training, we advise teachers what volume range is safe for children. This range has been devised with our headphone suppliers who are specialists in this area.
