At Young Friends we do lots of singing with the children. Though of course they are fantastic singers we know sometimes it is hard for you, their families, to understand exactly what they are singing to you at home. We consider this to be a really important aspect of communication between you and your children. Not only does it help their recall skills but it is invaluable in developing language and understanding. It would be lovely, we believe, if you could sing these songs at home with them. It will increase their enjoyment at nursery and develops the link between home and nursery – often the two most important places in their lives. We have compiled this list so you can sing together at home. Take a look at the links so you know what the tunes are. This is a work in progress and we will be adding more as we expand our song set. There will also be seasonal songs added in due course. Enjoy. We hope it helps…
