What is World Nursery Rhyme Week?
Launched in 2013, World Nursery Rhyme Week promotes the importance of nursery rhymes in early childhood development and education.
Over 3 million children from 70 + countries have taken part since 2013. The initiative is open to parents, Early Years practitioners and anybody who works with children under the age of 7.
The Rhyme A Day Challenge
Each year, we choose 5 rhymes and encourage children to take part in our ‘Rhyme a Day’ challenge by singing the nursery rhymes and taking part in supporting activities.
By registering your family or Early Years setting, you’ll have instant access to lots of fantastic free resources and suggested activity ideas that you can do at home or in your setting.
What’s in my Resource Pack?
Song downloads for each of the 5 rhymes, videos from Little Baby Bum, colouring in sheets, craft activity templates, word trace and pencil control templates, sequencing activities, sentence scramble, rock stickers, playdough mats, colouring in song book, cutting sheet exercise, posters and certificates, activity ideas and quiz downloads.
All downloadable resources are free.
