What is my favourite Nursery Rhyme?


This half term the children will be learning a series of classic nursery rhyme tales to develop their story telling language which will be an essential skill to support their own writing towards the end of the year. 


Singing nursery rhymes can also help develop children’s social skills as it is a great opportunity for children to get to know their peers. Introducing children to a variety of nursery rhymes can also help them understand and learn about different sounds. This is an important part of developing those early literacy skills. Listening to different sounds in the environment as well as in nursery rhymes provides children with the foundations in helping them to read and write.


The nursery rhymes we will be learning this half term are:

Row, row, row your boat

Incy Wincy Spider

Humpty Dumpty

The Wheels on the Bus

Old McDonald had a farm
