A week to celebrate nursery rhymes… join in at ABC Day Nursery.

Posted 2nd November, 2016
World Nursery Rhyme Week at ABC Day Nursery in Telford.

Nursery rhymes are an excellent way of teaching your child new words and sounds, introducing them to music and rhyme and simply interacting with them and enjoying time with them.

They play an important role in helping children with social, physical and emotional skills.

We love to encourage all of the children at ABC Day Nursery in Telford to sing different songs and it’s great when they learn the words to a new one, or start clapping and singing along!

As they’re such a great part of growing up, we’d like as many of our families as possible to take part in National Nursery Rhyme Week.

It runs from November 7 to 11 and is organised by Music Bugs which run classes up and down the country.

The idea is that anyone who has or works with children under the age of seven can take part – so parents and grandparents are welcome to sign up.

Once you’ve registered you’ll get sent a pack full of various resources like MP3s of nursery rhymes, colouring in sheets, an animated PowerPoint presentation, a songbook and certificates for all the little ones taking part.

They’ve chosen five traditional nursery rhymes for 2016 and the challenge is to sing one a day with your children. This year’s picks are Doctor Foster, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Two Little Dickie Birds, Incy Wincy Spider and Hey Diddle Diddle.

Last year nearly half a million children took part and had plenty of fun so it’s definitely worth signing up for!
