other educational themes such
as counting, colour recognition and pencil control.

and MP3 files.
These are grouped together
into Online Resource Packs (ORPs) which can be purchased and downloaded instantly from our online shop.
EYMAM isn’t exclusively for use

at home with their little ones,
parent and child groups,
childminders – can benefit from
sharing the EYMAM experience.

Simple percussion instruments can even be homemade eg. a saucepan and a wooden spoon.
The key ingredients are a smile and a willing child and EYMAM will bring it all together for you
to have a great time learning
about music and so much more without even realising.
EYMAM lesson plans contain a mixture of traditional and original songs and activities covering the following basic
musical concepts; steady beat, rhythm, tempo and dynamics. Each contains simple to follow guidance for the adult
leading the session and can be adapted to suit the age and developmental level of the children participating in the
session. Even the youngest can benefit from the simple rhymes and lively songs, many of which have been written
and recorded specifically for EYMAM.
The complementary activity sheets add an extra dimension to the EYMAM experience, providing opportunities for
discussion on a variety of musical and wider educational concepts as well as providing the children with a physical
experience to enhance their learning.
The EYFS linked observation sheets are a valuable resource for early years practitioners and the Learning, Skills
and Fun sheets summarise the multiple educational opportunities which can be gained from the whole ORP.
