How It Works

The immersive audio resource that enhances learning for all primary school children.

We work with
children in over
schools to help every child fulfil their potential

now>press>play is an award-winning immersive audio resource for primary schools that engages children in the curriculum through sound, story and movement with 90+ Experiences.

In our Experiences each child is given a pair of wireless headphones. Immersed in sound, they become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure they’ll never forget.

From climbing through rainforest canopy in the Amazon, to fighting a woolly mammoth in the Stone Age, our audio adventures increase engagement, extend life experiences and inspire children to produce quality writing.

now>press>play is an inclusive resource which can be used as a whole class activity or with smaller groups for intervention work.
