Nursery Rhyme of the Week

Learning and singing nursery rhymes helps to develop language and communication skills in children. Rhymes encourage children to listen to the sounds they can hear and is a vital part of developing early reading skills.

 

In F1, we focus on a different nursery rhyme each week to build up a bank of rhymes that the children will come to know well.
