“Fantastic free resources and planning ideas for teachers. My children absolutely love taking part and this is one of the highlights of our school calendar. What’s more, all of the resources are free!”

Joanna Masters, KS1 Teacher, County Durham, United Kingdom.

Your FREE downloadable resources include: Song downloads for each of the 5 rhymes, videos from Little Baby Bum, colouring in sheets, cutting exercise, pencil control sheet, playdough mats, certificates, posters, activity ideas PDF, nursery rhyme quiz, participation letter to send to parents and logos for social media.

“We first got involved in WNRW in 2015 as we were looking for ideas to boost language and communication skills in our Kindergarten class. We plan the entire week around the 5 rhymes and it has been absolutely brilliant – even the parents like to get involved”.

Erin De Rosa, Canberra, Australia.
