Why do songs benefit my child so much?

ELMA songs are educationally based with great rhythm sung by professional voices which helps pupils enjoy and assimulate what they are taught, (listen below).

Songs

GOOD DAY ELMA
Good Day Good Day, I'm glad to be here
Good Day Good Day, I'm glad to be here
I'm glad to be here, to learn some new songs
Good Day Good Day, I'm glad to be here

COCONUT MAN
An island in the sun, where people are so friendly,
and in the trees are big coconuts, ripe coconuts to eat
Just watch that man a climbing the tree Running up its trunk so nimbly
with a smile and wave of his hand, to the people down below.
Oh lovely Mister Coconut Man, please cut them down as quick as you can
And we will catch them before they hit…before they hit the ground..(repeat) COCONUTS!

COUNT TOGETHER
Count together, one, two, three, four
Play as you count now, one, two, three, four
Strong on the first beat, one, two, three, four
Play the others quieter, one, two, three, four
Now play louder……..then play quieter………quieter still
now…let it fad away…(repeat) Finish very loud – last time

HATS
Hats, Hats, Hats, Hats lots of different Hats
A policeman wears a helmet working on his beat
A policeman wears a helmet walking down the street
I hope he remembers before he goes to bed
To take of his helmet from his head!

Hats, Hats, Hats, Hats, lots of different hats
A chef wears a tall hat when he goes to bake
A chef wears a tall hat when he makes a cake
I hope he remembers before he goes to bed
To take of his tall hat from his head!

I AM THE WIND
You'll hear me rattle on the window pane,
you'll hear me rustle in the leaves
You'll me blowing through the open door,
You'll see me bend the mighty trees.

For I am the wind, I am invincible,
I come and go just as I please,
I am the wind, I am invincible,
I come and go………yet nobody sees

ORANGE & YELLOW & BROWN
See the leaves are falling, autumn days are calling
Fields and pastures all are bare, autumn colours ev'rywhere
Orange and yellow & brown, Orange and yellow & brown,
Cattle grazed and corn grew high, in the summer sun
Flowers and blossom sang their song, now their work is done
Morning mist now chills the air, golden tree tops everywhere
Orange and yellow & brown, Orange and yellow & brown

THE SUN HAS GOT HIS HAT ON
The sun has got his hat on, Hip, hip, hip, hooray!
the sun has got his hat on, and he's coming out today.
Now we'll all be happy, hip, hip, hip, hooray!
the sun has got his hat on, and he's coming out today.
He's been tanning tourists out in Timbuktu,
now he's coming back, to do the same to you……SO
Jump into your sunbath, hip, hip, hip, hooray!
the sun has got his hat on, and he's coming out today.

WE'RE GOING SWIMMING
The sand is warm, the sky is blue, it all seems so exciting.
The sun is out, enjoy the view, the water looks inviting
One, two, three – we're going swimming, take a breathe and dip your toe
One, two, there – we're going swimming, start to shiver, all of a quiver
Knees start to shake, what a mistake! Fingers turn blue, so do you,
Why is it so cold? Let's be bold! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven!
IT'S HEAVEN!
