Nursery rhymes are so important for young children. They help them to develop their language, their listening skills, and rhythm and rhyme. They also help them to hear the sounds and syllables in words. Have a go at learning 'Pat-a-cake' at home. You may want to start by just listening and clapping along with the beat - which is a great skill to learn too!
Please let us know how you get on with this nursery rhyme! You can send photos and any updates to email@example.com
You could also let me know your favourite nursery rhymes, and I can share them on our blog for everyone to learn.
