This week was National Nursery Rhyme Week – a nationwide initiative that aims to emphasise the importance of nursery rhymes for developing language and communication as well as social, physical and emotional skills. Singing nursery rhymes and songs to children from birth can help develop language skills from an early age which is crucial for later life chances. A child’s language at age two predicts how well they will do in reading, maths and writing when they start school. Children are beginning to build a good bank of rhymes which we encourage you to continue and build on at home.
Thank you to everyone who attended stay and play, we hope you enjoyed it!
