Magic Adventure Charlotte has spent several months studying the Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) and has developed imaginative, experiential and practicable training for practitioners using music, singing and playfulness to enable and enhance children’s learning through creative play.

Magic Adventure Magic Adventure Magic Adventure The ground breaking Priory Children’s Centre in Great Yarmouth commissioned Charlotte (who is the resident early year music specialist) and Liz Jones (a Music Therapist) to develop and deliver a programme of training to early year practitioners in how to use singing and playfulness to raise levels in all aspects of the EYFS curriculum particularly literacy and PSE.
The music programme is one part of four strands that the Priory ran throughout 2009. Government statistics show a rise in levels of PSE and literacy in the area where the project has taken place! Magic Adventure Magic Adventure Magic Adventure Magic Adventure

I didn’t want to do this course – I was terrified [of music] – but look at what I and the children have got out of it.

Gemma - EY Practitioner

I can’t remember what we did before this course – we must have been really boring.

Haylee - EY Practitioner

This kind of approach promotes flexible thinking, where the general curriculum, TV, and the pressures of their home routines are actively denying our children these opportunities.

Neil Barrett - Speech Therapist

The course has put me back in touch with my own creativity.

Katrina - EY Practitioner

The songs and activities we have put in place are being used throughout the whole school.

Amanda – Early Year Special Needs Practitioner
