Calling all staff working with children 0 - 6 years!!
Great rhymers make great readers and the Rhyme Challenge is an excellent way for children and parents to take part in an informal learning opportunity whilst having lots of fun too. All they have to do is learn the five nursery rhymes in the pack. It is
suitable for pre-school, nursery and reception age children.
How you do the challenge is up to you - if you are able to teach the rhymes to children and parents socially distanced together that's great but current restrictions may mean that the best option would be to teach the children in school and then ask the
parents to learn a different rhyme each week in their own homes - the children will probably teach the parents!!
Whichever you choose it is important that families complete the feedback sheets in the pack at the end of the challenge as we need these to secure future funding.
Each pack contains full instructions and enough resources for 30 families, including rhyme sheets and completion certificates. It is fine to photocopy any part of the pack if you need more sheets, or if you have a lot of families please ask for an extra
We shall be sending out packs on a first come first served basis - so if your setting would like to do the challenge, please get in touch as soon as possible.
Finally, during July we hope to hold an Awards Ceremony for those settings that have gone the extra mile – so don’t forget to self nominate before the end April 2021 (details on the pack).
If you have any queries please get in touch.
