Nursery rhymes help young children to develop vocabulary and communication skills and encourage them to become interested in rhythms, rhymes and patterns in language.

This resource pack provides a selection of traditional nursery rhymes to recite with the children and a range of stick puppet characters that young learners can create to retell the nursery rhymes in the learning environment.

Nursery Rhymes included:

  • Humpty Dumpty
  • Little Miss Muffet
  • The Grand Old Duke of York
  • Incy Wincy Spider
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • Wind the Bobbin Up

Included in this EYFS resource pack

  • Nursery rhyme puppet templates
  • Teacher notes with guidance on how the resources could be used in the classroom
