Rhymes are fantastic vocabulary boosters. They often feature a rhythmic pattern and simple repetitive phrases that young children find easy to remember and repeat. Counting songs (e.g “Five Currant Buns”) help to develop a familiarity with number sounds and words in a way that is fun and interesting to a young child. Songs such as ‘When Goldilocks Went to The House of The Bears’ also introduce the concept of scale, size and order. Familiarity with counting songs provides the foundation for crucial mathematical skills and awareness. The act of singing a rhyme or engaging with it physically, encourages children to express themselves in a creative way and to find their own personal ‘voice' supporting their social development.
