Nursery Songs  

Children of all ages love action songs. They quite often want to sing them over and over and over again. Whilst providing the child with much fun and laughter, action songs sung at nursery also provide the children with many opportunities for learning. These include: Developing their memory, singing in groups, performing solo, developing coordination and a sense of rhythm.
