Nursery Rhyme Week 2023 

13th to 17th November 2023

Each year our EYFS classes enjoy a week celebrating nursery rhymes. Nursery rhymes play an important role in early childhood development and education. 


Nursery rhymes and children’s songs boost vocabulary and language development

They help children to develop literacy skills

They provide a fun way to support early numeracy skills

Nursery rhymes help children to develop social, physical and emotional skills.


The Rhyme A Day Challenge

Each year, we choose 5 rhymes and encourage children to take part in our ‘Rhyme a Day’ challenge by singing the nursery rhymes and taking part in supporting activities. 

The 5 official rhymes for 2023 are:

Jack & Jill

Hickory Dickory Dock

Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Row Row Row Your Boat

Wheels On The Bus



Nursery rhymes are excellent teaching tools and can help to develop:

language and literacy skills

numeracy skills

social, physical and emotional skills – they are so much fun!
