April Rhymes and Songs

This month our topic is 'Ourselves.' We will be talking about parts of the body, our characteristics, favourite things, how to look after ourselves and how we grow up from being a baby. We will still be talking about growth and life-cycles through animals, plants and people.

 

 

 

This is the Way

 

 

 

(To the tune of ‘Here we go Round the Mulberry Bush)

 

This is the way we wash our hands,

Wash our hands, wash our hands.

This is the way we wash our hands,

Early in the morning.

 

This is the way we wash our face,

Wash our face, wash our face.

This is the way we wash our face,

Early in the morning.

 

Repeat with brush our teeth and brush our hair.

Tommy Thumb, Tommy Thumb, where are you?

Here I am, here I am. How do you do?

 

Peter Pointer, Peter Pointer, where are you?

Here I am, here I am. How do you do?

 

Tommy Tall, Tommy Tall, where are you?

Here I am, here I am. How do you do?

 

Ruby Ring, Ruby Ring, where are you?

Here I am, Here I am, How do you do?

I Have 10 Little Fingers

I have ten little fingers and they all belong to me.

I can make them do things- would you like to see?

I can shut them up tight. I can open them wide.

I can put them all together. I can make them all hide.

I can make them jump high, I can make them jump low.

I can fold them up quietly and hold them just so.

 

 

 

If You’re Happy and You Know It

 

 

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it.

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

(Repeat leaving out head, then shoulders etc.)


I Wiggle My Fingers

 

I wiggle my fingers.

I wiggle my toes.

I wiggle my shoulders.

I wiggle my nose.

There are no more wiggles left in me.

I’m as still and as quiet as can be.

 

 

One Finger, One Thumb

 

One finger, one thumb, keep moving.

One finger, one thumb, keep moving.

We’ll all be merry and bright.

Miss Polly

 

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.

So she phoned for the Doctor to come quick, quick, quick.

The Doctor came with his bag and his hat.

And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat.

 

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head.

And he said “Miss Polly put her straight to bed.”

He wrote on his paper for a pill, pill, pill.

“I’ll be back in the morning for my bill, bill, bill.”
