This project is all about the sounds words make.
Use the templates to create a humpty dumpty sitting on a wall. After you’ve finished, read the rhyme together and listen to the sounds the words make. Note how young children will respond to the rhythms and sounds. Older children may even be able to sound out the letters at the start of some of the words.

EYFS Learning and Development Area:
|Literacy: Reading and Writing|
Early Learning Goals:
|Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately.|
What to look for on this project:
|16-26 months||How do the young children respond to the rhyme and rhythm of the nursery rhyme?|
|22-36 months||What words, phrases and sounds do the children join in with? If you start the sentence ‘Humpty Dumpty sat on the ….’ can they finish the missing part?|
|30-50 months||Do the children join in with the nursery rhyme? Can they tap out the rhythm of the nursery rhyme as you say it together? Can they clap in time?|
|40-60 months||Can older children hear and say the initial sounds of words? Do they know which letters represent some of the sounds? Can they read the nursery rhyme words?|
