Music

Music can be from a number of different outlets, including on a tablet or TV.  Try to vary the type of music you listen to by trying a new radio station such as classical, jazz or opera.  If you have access to a bigmac at home, you could record your child’s favourite theme tune or song for them to listen to repeatedly. 

Children's songs, especially songs that feature interactive activities have many benefits.  They help to strengthen memory and recall, develop fine and gross motor skills and enhance hand-eye coordination. We have collated a selection which our pupils should recognise.
