We are very excited! Tomorrow is the start of World Nursery Rhyme Week 2015. This is a chance to celebrate 5 pre-chosen nursery rhymes between 9th-13th November.
Last year 446,000 children participated across 31 countries. Adventures of Adam took part in 2014 by opening our blog up to 5 guest bloggers. Last years rhymes were Five Currant Buns, Hey Diddle Diddle, I Hear Thunder, Oranges and Lemons and Old King Cole.
At the beginning of the year we joined forces with five other bloggers to form #RhymeTime. Each fortnight we share several ways to play with a variety of Nursery Rhymes. Take a look at some the Nursery Rhyme activities we have completed so far.
This years World Nursery Rhyme Week looks to be even more spectacular. The following rhymes will be celebrated throughout the week:
Miss Polly Had a Dolly
Ring O’ Ring O’ Roses
1-2-3-4-5 (Once I Caught A Fish Alive)
Grand Old Duke Of York
