The study of Nursery Rhymes and their distinctive word patterns and story lines are an important and exciting part of the Prep curriculum. Nursery Rhyme Day is a great way to draw together the learning that has taken place throughout the term and for all of those involved to have a chance to actively participate in a special day of celebration.
On the actual day at the Bellarine Campus, students and staff dress up as a character in their favourite Nursery Rhyme and spend the day immersed in a wide variety of literacy and numeracy activities surrounding the topic.
Experience has shown us that children love nothing more than taking on the persona of a literary character that they really enjoy reading about. The experiences of those involved in this year’s Nursery Rhyme Day once again proved to be wonderful with many memories of good times etched in the minds of the children.
