What time of the year does the Subscription start?
Your now>press>play Subscription can start at any time of the year.
How long is each Experience?
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
What do the Resource Packs Contain?

The Resource Packs come complete with Literacy lessons that link directly to the Experience:

  • Storyboard
  • SATs-style Reading Comprehension
  • Writing Opportunities

The Maths and Literacy Experiences do not have Resource Packs, but instead come complete with differentiated worksheets which the children complete during the Experience.

What about my low and high ability children?
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.
How many children can take part in an Experience?

now>press>play is a whole class Experience but can also be used with smaller groups for intervention work.

What ages are your Experiences suitable for?

Our annual Subscription is for EYFSKS1 and KS2. We also sell KS3 Science Experiences individually.

What space do you need for a now>press>play Experience?
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!
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.
