Old MacDonald at Children 1st @ Hathern

Singing has so many benefits, such as nurturing language skills and memory which is why at Children 1st Day Nurseries we sing with the children every day. It’s also a fun thing to do and helps to spread happiness and a sense of community as we all sing along.

The under 2s Bobtails at Hathern have been exploring the nursery rhyme, Old MacDonald Had a Farm. We used the props in our song bag to help bring the nursery rhyme to life and to give the children the tactile experience of holding the animal while we were singing. Sitting on a fluffy mat, the Bobtails took it in turns to take hold of an animal of their choice which we then used as a prompt for a song. They loved looking at the animals and making animal noises. Well done Bobtails!
