Example Music Videos

What Happens During a Workshop?

 

Firstly, the children are taught a dance routine so they can warm up as Rocktopus rock out one of their own original songs. Then, starting with a recap of whatever maths skill is the focus (e.g. the 7 X table), Tom and Andy weave the children's mathematical understanding into a unique song.

The children create physical actions and accompanying rhyming lyrics for each number sentence created. For example: 1 x 7 = 7, let's go surfing in Devon, 2 x 7 = 14, let's all eat more beans.

This process is achieved in a highly energetic and interactive way, resulting in a hugely memorable song with actions, imagery and rhyming which children take full ownership of.

 

Rocktopus can write songs about number bonds, counting, properties of shape or indeed anything that requires children to remember mathematical facts. ​

 

Each workshop ends with the creation of an awe inspiring music video - fully edited and personalised for your school. You'll receive a link to a private password protected page on the Rocktopus website where you'll find your music videos. Share the password with parents so that your children can watch the videos at home with friends and family.

How Can You Use Your Videos After The Workshop?

- In class to help children learn and remember their times tables and number facts

- As an exciting, engaging homework activity to continue their learning

- As brain breaks in the classroom to increase physical fitness

- On your website to show the world what's important to your school

- To show parents the amazing opportunities you're giving their children

“It’s an absolute no-brainer! It’s fun, it’s inclusive, it’s all the things that are great about education rolled in to one. We’ve had them in twice now, and have booked them to come again!”   
 

George Samois - Head Teacher, Twerton infants, Bath

“The children had fantastic fun, learning to make music together, thinking of lyrics and learning the sociable value of music and how it linked to our school’s values. It was accessible by all children regardless of their ability or background. Brilliant!”

Miss Morton, Milford Infants

“What an awesome experience for our school community! They have left a legacy for our newly established school, with a song and dance routine which can be replicated for many years to come!
