This week some Honey children have enjoyed singing nursery rhymes with props. They particularly enjoyed the 5 currant bun song. The children were able to sing along to the song with Jess and pause to complete their actions to the song while giving their money and receiving their bun.
This mathematical rhyme involves the idea of numbers and counting, along with the shape description of ’round’. The word ‘penny’ introduces the idea of money, and ‘take it away’ reinforces the idea that the number will get smaller as one has been removed.
