"Learning To Achieve"

World Nursery Rhyme Week 2021

Nursery rhymes are a brilliant tool to support our pupils learning and development. They can help our children to develop lots of fantastic skills such as literacy in which lots of rich language and rhyme is used. Many nursery rhymes are repetitive which can support the development of memory and help support the practice of listening and speaking skills. Nursery rhymes can be used to help support physical development through lots of different actions and  body movements. They support numeracy skills with counting concepts, aswell as supporting our children's knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

This week was world nursery rhyme week and Dosbarth Enfys have focused their song sessions on these 5 chosen nursery rhymes Incy Wincy Spider, Wind the Bobbin, Head, shoulders, knees and toes, Sleeping bunnies and Down in the Jungle.

During these sessions the pupils have enjoyed choosing and listening to the different rhymes using their Tap, Tap, box. Watching and joining in with the actions, exploring sensory related items to the rhymes and engaging with the class based activities within the enhanced provision. For further activities related to these rhymes please see the Blended Learning section of the website within the Language, Literacy and Communication folder.

Da iawn pawb!
