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

But, our songs also support cross-curricular topics - so not only are children developing their literacy and communication skills - they are learning the key concepts and facts about your chosen subject.

Cut Down Planning Time

Appropriate topic songs can be hard to find, and take hours of planning which can leave you feeling tired and frustrated.

Learn Together

Adults and children can learn together with our resources. We’ve helped over 7000 teachers find perfect songs to support their topics.

Inclusion is at our Heart

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 Makaton 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 🙂 "

Music Changes Lives


As adults we sometimes forget the impact that music can have on young lives. Learning an instrument, singing wonderful songs and being part of something bigger than ourselves can inspire children to begin a life-long love of music.

Our mission at Go Kid Music is to capture children's imaginations and inspire them to engage in music as they grow up.

There isn't much great music out there for Primary School Children, which is why I began writing songs.

The collection is growing and growing, and each song is tried and tested in primary schools in Brighton, UK.

The teachers ask me to write songs for their topics and help the children remember the key facts and vocabulary. So I make sure every song has all the ingredients of a great song that the kids will love to sing....while they learn.

So far we've had rave reviews!


handwritten letter from Laurie about Go Kid Music club

How Do Teachers Use the Materials?


"I'm a peri music teacher teaching nursery up to yr 6 in 3 schools. I only see each class for 30 to 45 mins a week and what's been so great about the Go Kid Music stuff is that after I have been through the song and taught it to the children, I can leave the split screen video (fantastic resource) with the class teacher to practice without having to sing it themselves - which is so scary for a lot of class teachers!"

-Nicky Clark, Music Specialist, Kent

Feedback from Support Staff at St Lukes Primary, Brighton


"The songs are the soundtrack to our day!"

"It’s perfect for TAs and support staff to use"

"The children go home singing the songs and parents are thrilled! The fact that families can have the membership at home, means the children can share their learning and singing with their family, and parent engagement has soared."

"It has had a hugely positive effect on children who came into school nervous and shy - it has brought them out of themselves and given them self-confidence"

"We play the songs in snack times, during ‘golden time’ and the children love to choose the songs and sing along while they do other activities"

-TAs & INAs, St.Lukes, Brighton
