With the above knowledge in mind, we have devised a core set of nursery rhymes that children should know by the end of Reception.
1 Baa Baa Black Sheep 5 Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
2 Incy Wincy Spider 6 5 Currant Buns
3 Humpty Dumpty 7 5 Little Ducks Went Swimming One Day
4 Miss Polly 8 1,2,3,4,5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive
In school, we sing a wide range of nursery rhymes on a morning, before dinner time and at the end of the day. We also weave nursery rhymes into the day when the children are playing.
