Nursery Rhymes and Stories at BCI

Blue Coat C.E. Infant School

Foundation Stage Core Nursery Rhymes & Stories

In EYFS we recognise the importance of stories, songs and rhymes. Nursery rhymes are important for young children because they help develop an ear for our language. Both rhyme and rhythm help children hear the sounds and syllables in words, which helps them to learn to read!

Literacy and child development experts have determined that children who know at least 8 nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are 4 years old are usually among the best readers and spellers in their class by Year 3.
