This week we will be celebrating World Nursery Rhyme week! World Nursery Rhyme Week is an annual initiative that promotes the importance of nursery rhymes in early childhood development. The initiative this year runs from the 18th – 22nd November 2019. To support this we will be focussing on the nursery rhyme “Down in the Jungle” Our interest table is displayed with animals to use as props to enhance the learning experience while learning actions and rhyme. We will also be providing other activities during the week to support this which will cover all areas of learning in the EYFS curriculum. Look out for print outs in your child’s book bag so you can continue this at home. Nursery rhymes and songs have a huge impact on children’s development. Children relish in listening to songs full of rhyming, rhythm and repetition. By singing songs containing these core elements it is helping boost children’s language, communications and literacy development.
