When we created Lost on Infinity, the first story from Rockford’s Rock Opera. we simply wanted to share a story we loved. But then parents and teachers told us how much they and their children were enjoying the adventure, its thought provoking messages, songs and ecological themes.
Although we knew the story was enjoyed by all ages, teachers from all over the world told us that it covered many aspects of their curricula, from creative writing and music, to history, geography, science and lots more – this was especially true for 6 – 8 year olds (KS2 in the UK).
As a result, and with help from teacher friends and fans of the story, we created Lesson Plans around all of these topics together with downloadable assets, games, puzzles for younger children and more besides. Take a look below and you’ll find a wide range of assets you can download to keep your children engaged, entertained… and learning too.
“Want a multi-media resource to meet the challenges of the Primary Framework for literacy? Well give Rockford’s Rock Opera a try. It is a cornucopia of different media: video, spoken word, music, drama, pictures and written texts. This wonderful resource gave a very wide range of opportunities for speaking and listening, drama and reading and writing.
My class year 4, middle and lower ability children – predominantly boys – loved it!!! Rockford took over our whole classroom and was used as an inspiration for work in almost every other subject – a truly cross-curricular theme. We celebrated our work in an assembly shown to the rest of the school, parents and friends. The children excelled themselves. Their learning and self confidence has exceeded expectations. Please take a look to find the creatures’ secrets. You and your pupils will not regret it!”
