These materials allow pupils to learn about story and characterisation in an irresistibly fun way by immersing them in the world of the Muppets. The online resources can form a discrete interactive Literacy / ICT project over a 3–5 week block, or they can be used as stand alone lessons in Literacy, ICT or Music for pupils between the ages of 5 and 11.
