Frequently asked questions
Why do I need Project Earth Rock, and will it help me teach the national curriculum?
Project Earth Rock is a comprehensive climate change curriculum like no other as it uses catchy songs, vibrant karaoke videos and funny animations to inspire your pupils. These attractive media give you the best chance to bring eco topics to life for as many of your pupils as possible. It is cross curricular and clearly outlines which parts of the English and Scottish curricula each lesson supports.
What are Jess Gold’s free live songwriting concerts, how do I access them and when are they?
Every half term you can bring Jess straight into your classroom for 30 minutes. In each concert she will focus on one song from the resource. Your pupils will be able to learn it in advance from a video we send you. Jess will also write a new song with help from your class. Your pupils will be able to remain anonymous online. Click on 'Sign up for concert info" on our home page and we will keep you informed.
