ODL - R & R Sounds 1

Each Rhythm and Rhyme session is themed and full of activities aimed at younger children to support developing their numeracy, literacy and understanding of the world. They are engaging and packed with familiar songs and rhymes often accompanied by percussion instruments, puppets and toys with simple actions children can follow and join in so they have fun while they learn.

The activities are appealing to both girls and boys and Sharon has a wide range of props and toys that helps the children to engage and get involved.

In this session:
Sharon sings traditional nursery rhymes and songs with a twist! She substitutes different words altering them to fit different themes to include colours, movements and counting. She also uses musical instruments and props for sound effects that relate to the rhymes and has puppets and toys to keep children engaged. The session also includes a short game.
