Poetry with Parents

Last week Nursery children and grown-ups enjoyed a fabulous Poetry with Parents event.

The children shared rhymes they had been learning, with the adults in the class and encouraged their grown-ups to join in. Thank you to those parents that were able to join, the children really enjoy sharing and celebrating their learning with you and it is an excellent opportunity for you to find out what we are doing in school. The children sang familiar nursery rhymes and even performed their own poem that they had adapted.
 
In Clown Fish Class the children made their own version of Humpty Dumpty, it went like this:
 
Humpty Dumpty jumped on a log,
Humpty Dumpty fell on a frog,
All the king’s fishes and all the king’s ducks
couldn’t get humpty because he was stuck.
 
It is important to immerse children in rhyming activities to promote their early literacy development, as through singing songs and saying rhymes children are developing their listening and speaking skills which are vital to their literacy development. By doing these activities we teach children audio discrimination, listening skills, a rich range of language, concentration skills and phonemic awareness. The great thing about singing is that you can do it anywhere! In the car, on the way to school or in the bath, have fun with your children and make up your own silly rhyming words.
