Our Nursery Rhyme Challenge is continuing and we hope you enjoy the next rhyme.

We hope you had lots of fun learning the previous nursery rhyme at home, we certainly enjoyed singing it on the stage in our outside area and during group times. 

 

 

This week we would like you to practise ‘Tommy Thumb’, which is a great action rhyme for developing finger isolation and strength. It can be viewed here:

Tommy Thumb

(Hands in the air, raise Tommy Thumb and give him a wiggle/bend)

Tommy Thumb, Tommy Thumb,
Where are you?
Here I am, here I am,
How do you do?

 

(Now it’s Peter Pointer’s turn which is your index finger; he’s the one who points. Remember to wiggle/bend him.)

Peter Pointer, Peter Pointer,
Where are you?
Here I am, here I am,
How do you do?

 

(Now it's Toby Tall which is your middle finger; he’s the tallest one of them all. Wiggle and bend Toby Tall as you sing)

Toby Tall, Toby Tall,
Where are you?
Here I am, here I am,
How do you do?

 

(And now it's Ruby Ring, she’s the fourth one along. Remember to wiggle/bend her)

Ruby Ring, Ruby Ring,
Where are you?
Here I am, here I am,
How do you do?

 

(Last, but not least is Baby Small, he’s the littlest finger of all. Wiggle and bend him as you sing)

Baby Small, Baby Small,
Where are you?
Here I am, here I am,
How do you do?

 

(OK, now for the last time put your fingers in the air, give them a wiggle and wave them everywhere)

Fingers all, Fingers all,
Where are you?
Here we are, here we are,
How do you do?
Here we are, here we are,
How do you do?

 

Have fun and we look forward to singing with you next week.
