Hello children, Jude, Lamby and Flossie would like to welcome you to 'Nursery Rhyme Day'. We love Nursery Rhymes and hope you have lots of fun joining in with our activities.
Nursery Rhymes are wonderful because -
They are full of lovely words
They introduce us to rhythm and rhyme
They help us with our reading
They are fun
Can you guess which Nursery Rhymes we'll be doing today?
The Story of Incy Wincy
I'm going to tell you the story of Incy Wincy. There are lots of actions to join in with and at the end we can sing the Nursery Rhyme.
Encourage your children to join in with the actions and with the Nursery Rhyme at the end.
Develops - Communication & Language and Physical skills
Make Your Own Incy
Let's make our own Incy Wincy Spider. You can decide what to use or you can make one like mine from Pipe Cleaners. Make sure your spider has 8 legs. And if you give your spider eyes, they normally have 8 eyes too.
Encourage your child to discuss their ideas. What will they use to make their spider? You might want to research spiders to find out more about them.
Develops - Physical, Communication and Understanding the World skills.
Humpty Dumpty is actually a game. For this we have to sit on the floor in an egg shape, hold our knees then rock back and try to stand up. It's good fun! Can you join in?
Encourage your children to join in with the Nursery Rhyme and activity. Use vocabulary such as rock, egg shape, back, stand up and exercise. You might like to do the Humpty Dumpty Exercise yourself!

Five Current Buns
Can you join in with the rhyme Five Current Buns? You might like to set up your own Baker Shop to go with the rhyme? You can ask your teddies or other people in your house to be the customers.
Help your children to gather the resources they want to use for the rhyme. Encourage your children to join in with the rhyme. Use language such as - bakers shop, how many are left, let's count, bought etc.
