Introducing Aurora and the Magical Toy Box

Take a tour of the resources and see how your school could benefit from the programme.

Outstanding quality

These resources are created by Aurora Orchestra’s team of world-class musicians and music education experts, working in collaboration with some of the UK’s leading designers, film-makers, directors and award-winning children’s poet Kate Wakeling. Bringing inspirational quality to the classroom, these resources are a treat for all the senses.

Schemes of work

All of our programmes offer 10-week schemes of work you can follow. Presented as a sequence of beautiful films, recordings and visual resources which can be displayed on a whiteboard, these schemes of work are easy to use with all of the planning and preparation already done.

Activity and audio libraries

Choose from over 100 activities in our library and build your own programme or simply dip in to choose 5-minute music breaks whenever you want.

The audio library also gives you access to all of Aurora’s recordings made specifically for these resources – your pupils can listen to beautiful arrangements of well-known orchestral works or have fun with a wide range of loops and vamps which can be used for all sorts of games and activities.

Put on your own show

Ideas, scripts and backing tracks to enable your class to put on their own performance and share their learning with an audience.
