World Nursery Rhyme Week

Friday 15 November 2019

The week commencing 18 November 2019 is World Nursery Rhyme Week. Nursery rhymes play an important role in early childhood development and education. They aid language and communication, assist with learning early maths and support the development of children’s social, physical and emotional skills.

As part of World Nursery Rhyme Week we will be theming our teaching and classroom provision around well-known nursery rhymes.

These are the rhymes we will be looking at each day:

Monday – Baa Baa Black Sheep

Tuesday – Down in the Jungle

Wednesday – Incy Wincy Spider

Thursday – Row Row Row your Boat

Friday – Two Little Dickie Birds


To further engage the children, we would like them to tell us about their favourite nursery rhyme. For example, they could bring in a book to share, a picture of their favourite rhyme or even a prop. We would also love to know what your favourite nursery rhyme was whilst you were growing up. Please could these be brought into school ready to share on Tuesday 19 November.
