English From Rhymes

Foundation-KS1

Nursery rhymes can be a starting point for a wide range of activities and investigations. In this book ‘Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary’ introduces topics like the garden and caring for the environment, while ‘Polly Put the Kettle On’ leads children to investigate tea-making and where tea comes from.

Rhymes like these can provide many links across the curriculum, including Language, Maths, Science, History, Geography and Technology. Exploring these activities with 4-7 year old children, as described in this book, can be an enjoyable and fruitful experience.

The book looks at changes in language, sequences of events, organising information and exploring strange and unusual ideas.

Description

Traditional rhymes are a brilliant vehicle for encouraging children to develop listening and reading skills from an early age.

For some children, they are the first experience of ‘talking’ in the classroom. From an early age children will recite rhymes, often without understanding the words, they simply enjoy the sound and the rhythm.

This book looks at changes in language, sequences of events, organising information and exploring strange and unusual ideas.
