The whole purpose of this album is to help children achieve their learning objectives for school, and what a wonderful way to do it through funky fun beats and updated classic nursery rhymes; 'my son has learnt all the days of the week, his alphabet and all the letter sounds, so thank you Bright Beats" Parent from the Bright-starter classes. Bright Beats was produced by Learn4life Publishing and Simple Minded productions in order to help children learn the essential skills needed for pre-school and school. Each track has been careful selected, performed and arranged to appeal to a child's natural sense of rhythm and fun as well as being pitched at a child's natural vocal range. Some of the tracks have been written especially for this CD in order to teach a child the weather terms, days of the week and letter sounds. Learn4life Publishing Ltd (www. Learn4life. Co.UK) specializes in a range of educational resources, posters, books and games for schools, colleges and other establishments. The company was founded by Eve Wilson, an ex-Head-teacher with over forty years' experience and a passion for education! Eve gained an initial teaching qualification at the University of London, Institute of Education, a First Class degree specializing in Early Years education, an MA in Educational Management, and is an OFSTED inspector for Primary schools with special qualifications in the Early Years. Eve set up Learn4life with a partner five years ago as she became so concerned by the lack of educationally sound, appropriate, robust resources for use in schools. She has pioneered the development of Bright Start at home and Bright-Starter Activity Classes as a new branch of Learn4ife in response to demands by parents for resources that enable them to take an active role in their child's learning. Eve's own five grandchildren and their school experiences have proved the trigger for many of the initiatives, especially Bright Beats.
