This Week in Nursery

It’s been another fun week, where we have been learning about traditional nursery rhymes!

Here are some displays from the work we have been doing with the kids!

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the Kings horses and all the King’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again!

We made papier mache Humpties as a class and the children also made their own ones, 2D, sat on a wall!

The Grand Old Duke Of York

Oh the Grand Old Duke Of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top pf the hill
and he marched them down again
And when they were up they were up
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up
They were neither up nor down

We sang the rhyme, and marched in a circle. Some children also used drums to beat to the tune. Then we made soldiers to reinforce the shapes we had been learning, Square, rectangle and circle.


Below the display, you can see sounds which the children have been learning. The baskets in front held objects which start with each sound. A great exploratory way for them to understand about initial sounds!

Jack and Jill

jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after
Up Jack got and home did trot
As fast as he could caper
He went to bed to mend his head
With vinegar and brown paper

We drew around a boy and a girl and then used collage and paint to create a Jack and a Jill! These were used on our display. Then we sang the rhyme, many times, and acted it out using a well we constructed, complete with pulley, so they could fetch their own water! and a ‘hill’ for them to walk up, and fall down! The picture may not make sense it was very effective, and the children loved it!

And that doesn’t include the tray finger painting! Messy but again, lots of fun!

It’s been a busy creative week, but I love making these displays for the children to enjoy their work!

    I remember those nursery rhymes but don’t remember them being as much fun as you have made them for your nursery class! 🙂

    I have the same wooden stair / boat. It makes the best prop for doing a play performance of “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”.

    Ritu, the best Humpty Dumpty activity I do with children is to cut out an oval into three irregular shaped parts, then have the children put the shapes together with band aids. Peeling and sticking band aids is a terrific fine motor activity. Figuring out how to put the three oval parts together is great puzzling. This activity is always a big hit.

    That’s so cool! Some of my best memories of childhood were making crafts in class. It was always so fun.

    This looks so much fun! I want to go back to nursery, painting and drawing sounds much more fun than essays on Stalin’s economy!
