Toikido will provide participating schools with a free resource pack containing three lessons supporting the music and art curriculum for KS1 and KS2, as well as extension ideas for art and design and English.

The packs have been designed to blend learning with fun by featuring beloved game characters from Piñata Smashlings including “Berry Boo, Tutti Bel, Jasper, Jet and Noakes”. Utilising music from the upcoming Piñata Smashlings album “Smashling Hits”, students will learn the importance of pulse, rhythm, and sound effects, which they will later use to create their very own musical story. They will also undertake a range of art activities including designing their own Piñata Smashlings character.

Accompanied by a number of colourful costume characters and members of the studio’s team, Grammy award winning producer and Toikido’s Head of Music, Jason Perry, will visit 20 selected schools across and from April 16th to May 23rd for an all-day learning event.
