music for early years language literacy

DfE Recommendations to Support Improving Early Language and Literacy


The DfE highlights the importance of developing pupils’ speaking and listening skills and wider understanding of language.

Using a range of different activities like singing, can develop children’s early reading and ability to hear and manipulate sounds. 

By introducing singing into everyday learning you have access to a powerful tool.

My songs offer children the opportunity to copy and learn words, sounds and build their vocabulary.

They also support cross-curricular topics - so not only are children developing their literacy skills - they are learning the key facts about your chosen subject.

Headteacher Testimonial

"I especially love your music - it is so catchy and well presented! We usually sing a lot here, but obviously at the moment are using a lot of signed & subtitled teaching videos so that the children can still get physically involved in the music.

Your songs have really given our school a lift in these difficult times, so please keep up the good work 🙂 "
