Hi girls. I hope you are all keeping well. I hope last week’s activities were enjoyable. I look forward to hearing all of your home languages when we get back to school. This week we will be focusing on nursery rhymes. 



  • I have uploaded this activity to Seesaw. 


  • I have chosen 4 nursery rhymes. Read the rhymes, sing the rhymes and say them out loud. 


  • Next I want you to pick your favourite nursery rhyme. It can be a different one to the ones I have picked. 
  • Practise saying it in a funny voice, a happy voice, a sad voice. 
  • Now record yourself saying the nursery rhyme in your best performing voice. Have a listen to it.  
  • I would love to hear your performances. You can upload your favourite performance to Seesaw. 
  • Extra: Do you know any nursery rhymes in your own language? Maybe a parent could help you? I would love to hear recordings of these too! 
Humpty Dumpty 


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. 
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. 
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again. 


Hickory Dickory Dock

Hey Diddle Diddle 


Hey Diddle Diddle, 
The cat and the fiddle, 
The cow jumped over the moon. 
The little dog laughed, 
To see such fun, 
And the dish ran away with the spoon. 

Incy Wincy Spider 


Incy Wincy spider went up the water spout. 
Down came the rain and washed the spider out. 
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain. 
So, Incy Wincy spider went up the water spout again.
