Nursery rhymes play an important role in early childhood development and education.
As well as being fun they are excellent teaching tools. Nursery rhymes and children’s songs boost vocabulary and language development, they help children to develop literacy skills and they provide a fun way to support early numeracy skills.
Did you know? If children know 8 nursery rhymes by the time they are 4 years of age, they are usually among the best readers and spellers in their class by the time they are 8 years old!
Our ‘Rhyme a Day’ at home challenge will focus on one nursery rhyme each day in the following order:
• Monday 16th November: ‘The Wheels On The Bus’.
• Tuesday 17th November: ‘Five Little Speckled Frogs’.
• Wednesday 18th November: ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’.
• Thursday 19th November: ‘Old MacDonald Had A Farm’.
• Friday 20th November: ‘Miss Polly Had A Dolly’.
Please share with us any learning that is taking place at home through our school Twitter account @stmarys_CofE
