Alternatively, once students are familiar with the story they can simply listen and look at the pictures. This is ideal for use as part of an integrated scheme of work for art music and literacy this is a very approachable resource for non-specialists.
During their exploration of the beach Ollie and his friends discover Jupiter Cove. As they clamber up the high rocks, unaware of the dangers of the tide, giant sea horses appear and direct them away from the rushing water to a place of safety. It is from here that the children watch the magical song and dance of the sea horses. This story introduces 'Jupiter' from The Planets by Gustav Holst.
