Singing nursery rhymes and songs to young children help develop their language and communication skills.  

In Nursery we use many different ways to make this type of learning fun, by using real objects, props, music or art. Creating a fun experience for children helps them to engage with language. They enjoy singing songs, developing their communication, language and social skills. 

We have been learning lots of different nursery rhymes. The children particularly enjoyed ‘Humpty Dumpty’. The Nursery children built Humpty Dumpty’s wall using different construction resources. They loved it when Humpty fell off the wall! They also played with broken eggshells (just like Humpty!) and used Sellotape to ‘put him back together again’.  

We also learnt ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ and they threaded spiderwebs for ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ to climb. We used sponges to print Twinkle, Twinkle Little star and decorated ‘Two Little Dicky Birds’ puppets as they can fly away!  

Singing songs and rhymes with your children is fun and educational!
