An amazing learning experience for children and parents to enjoy together.
Dream Leaners animated stories optimise fact and knowledge-based learning in the 90 minutes before sleep - the time the brain is most receptive to this kind of information.
For best results, try the 'bed and breakfast;' play the story once in the evening for an easier bedtime and again in the morning to reinforce the learning.
Created by teachers in association with child development expert Professor Robert Winston, Dream Learners stories bring the curriculum to life through a series of magical learning journeys.
Try the first two stories in the series, Raptastic and All in Good Time are free fort a limited time.
Join Twins Freddy and Bea and Doreen the Dormouse as Quercus takes them on a learning journey to explore the history of rap. Who were the storytelling Griots of West Africa? How is rap linked to slavery and why is bullying never cool?
Raptasic covers the following areas of learning:
English poetry, rhythm and rhyme
Music music from other cultures, following a rhythm and clapping out a beat
Social & Emotional - anti-bullying
PE - dance form other cultures
History - slavery, history and abolition
Geography developing knowledge of the world
The Dream Learners framework for learning is highly effective:
Bedtime is Best: Learning before a sleep pattern has a beneficial effect on long-term memory consolidation and the brains ability to recall factual information. We provide tailored learning content in the critical 90 minutes before bedtime.
Connected curriculum: Cross-curricular teaching is the most effective way to disseminate curricular learning. Childhood educators and researchers know that young children see the world as a connected whole rather than in isolated segments and that learning should reflect this. By connecting learning from disparate subject areas within our stories, childrens learning is both faster and more meaningful.
Home at the heart of learning: Creating a climate of curiosity and love for learning in the home has been found to be the most significant determinant of childrens future performance. Learning that parent and child can experience together has the most impact on a childs future academic success.
Huddle Hub: extend the learning experience through questions and simple activities that facilitate a dialogue between parent and child.
GloZone: Relaxing nightlight with vocabulary definitions and gentle assessment to help reinforce the learning and music to help transition children to sleep.
Amazing learning videos: best-in-class creative, animation and voice actors for a quality entertainment experience.
I loved watching my 6 year old daughter's face light up whist watching Dream Learners. She laughed, looked fully engaged and it held her attention throughout. I was also very impressed how it taught an important subject in such an age appropriate way. I felt like we were both learning together. This is something I would definitely sign up for and recommend to all my friends with children.
A very creative and fun video. Learning should always be this fun!!
It's hard to hold my daughters attention, she was playing on the iPad and I put the story on my phone, she handed me the iPad and took my phone off me. I used this story as leverage to get her in and out the bath in a timely fashion a process that has never been accomplished before!
"Impressed with the display. Great theme choice. I like that in one episode you manage to cover different subjects: bullying, tunes, rhythm, story of rap ... And all in a fun Way.
Raptastic is toptastic!
