World Nursery Rhyme Week 2021

'Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they're four years old, they're usually among the best readers by the time they're eight.' - Mem Fox, Reading Magic.


We love taking part in World Nursery Rhyme Week. It is a great time to really explore the stories of nursery rhymes, as well as have fun singing, playing instruments and developing our rhyming skills. This year the five nursery rhymes we have been learning and singing are 'Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes', 'Incy Wincey Spider', 'Wind the Bobbin Up', 'Down in the Jungle' and 'Sleeping Bunnies'.  This year the children got crafty creating their own skeletons, making a climbing Incy Wincey Spider, sewing using colourful threads and much more!
