Nursery Rhyme Week

by Mrs Ridings

What is World Nursery Rhyme Week? Founded by Music Bugs and launched in 2013, World Nursery Rhyme Week promotes the importance of nursery rhymes in early childhood development and education.

The Rhyme A Day Challenge Each year, we choose 5 rhymes and encourage children to take part in our ‘Rhyme a Day' challenge by singing the nursery rhymes and taking part in supporting activities.

The 5 official rhymes for 2022 were: The Big Ship Sails, 1,2,3,4,5, Five Little Speckled Frogs, BINGO, Twinkle Twinkle

Nursery rhymes are excellent teaching tools and can help to develop: •language and literacy skills •numeracy skills •social, physical and emotional skills – they are so much fun!
