Nursery Rhyme of the week!
Every week I will upload a Nursery rhyme that we are going to be learning in Nursery together. You could ask your child to sing the Nursery to you or you could even sing it together. I have included the words, just in case they need a little bit of extra practice!
The importance of Nursery rhymes and how it links to supporting your child with their future reading and writing skills:
Nursery rhymes are a great way for children to be introduced to the concept of rhythm and rhyming words. When listening to and joining in with nursery rhymes, children are developing their auditory discrimination skills; they are listening for words which have similar patterns to them. This then helps them later on at school, where they will use their knowledge of rhyme patterns in words to support their understanding of phonemes (letter sounds) in reading and writing.
