Nursery Rhymes

Date: 30th Sep 2023 @ 11:42am

Over the past few weeks we have been learning the nursery rhymes Humpty Dumpty and Incy Wincy Spider.

Nursery rhymes are an extremely important part of our curriculum within the Early Years.  They are a great way for children to be introduced to the concept of rhythm and rhyming words. When listening to and joining in with nursery rhymes, children are developing their auditory discrimination skills; they are listening for words which have similar patterns to them. This then helps them later on at school, where they will use their knowledge of rhyme patterns in words to support their understanding of phonemes in reading and writing.  

Therefore it would be really helpful if you could help support your child in reinforcing these nursery rhymes at home. 

Have fun singing this song together!
