Coventry Music has worked with Funky Feet Music to produce a free music resource exclusively for Early Years practitioners across Coventry. This resource is available for download.

This exclusive package of songs and supporting documents:

  • places emphasis on the link between music making and physical development and the subsequent effect on child development.
  • provides a broad range of songs and musical games that support language, literacy, and numeracy skills
  • follows the same format as the Development Matters framework
  • provides opportunities for observation and assessment and gives suggestions for extension activities
  • provides creative opportunities
