The wonderful world of nursery rhymes explored by Early Years' pupils

Nursery children at St George's Junior School have been busy exploring and enjoying the wonderful world of Nursery Rhymes this term. 

The children started their topic by listening to Humpty Dumpty, which was followed swiftly by the Grand Old Duke of York, who needed some help marching his men to the top of the hill and down again.

In Forest School they made spider’s webs for Incy Wincy and washed her down the spout in the classroom.

Rowing the boat down the stream proved to be a very fun activity…especially as some of our pupils dressed up as princesses!

Baa baa black sheep had plenty of wool…..and bubbles for the children to enjoy, oh so many bubbles.

They had so much water fun with a little tea pot, short and stout. Pouring and tipping with fruit tea bags, the classroom had a lovely aroma afterwards.

Miss Polly’s dolly was very sick, but the boys and girls took great care of her, as well as helping the Queen of Hearts bake more tarts. Muffins were baked for the Muffin Man and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star lit up the classroom as the children sang along while beating their triangles.

The children learnt so many nursery rhymes over the space of three weeks and had so much fun discovering what happened to the likes of Humpty Dumpty and co.
