Now Press Play

What is ‘now-press-play’?
 
now>press>play is an immersive audio resource that engages primary school children in the curriculum through emotion, imagination and movement.Immersed in sound, your child will become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure they’ll never forget!
 
How does it work?
  1. Get four pieces of paper and write the compass points: North, South, East, West. Stick them on the four walls of the room.
  2. You can either listen to the audio out loud or through headphones.
  3. Now Press Play!
  4. Follow the instructions in the story.
What do we do after an experience? 
  1. Discussion - use the Experience Guide or ask your own questions such as: 'what was your favourite part? How did it make you feel?' 
  2. Complete the follow-on activities and worksheets.
  3. Follow your child’s interests - perhaps they want to draw,  reenact a scene, write a newspaper report….the world is your oyster!
