This week our children have enjoyed singing lots of different songs and rhymes both independently and together during group sessions. We have noticed the children have their favourite songs which they frequently request and would love to see if this matches what they like to sing or hear you sing at home. It would be lovely to see your child singing their favourite song at home either independently or with an adult. Maybe your child’s favourite song could be part of our rhyme challenge in the coming weeks?  If you could add this to tapestry that would be great.

 

 

We hope you enjoy the following 5 little ducks activities...
