We are thrilled to announce that we WON the Bradford Libraries Rhyme Challenge Award for Best Practice PSLA yesterday at a ceremony held in the Banqueting Suite of Bradford Town Hall.
Tracy received the reward from the Deputy Lord Mayor and was accompanied on the day by our pre-school chair, Vanessa, and one of our children. Four pre-schools were nominated for the award. The other three being: The Villages Toddler Group, Addingham Pre-school Group and Menston Toddler Group.
The challenge required us to introduce our children to a different nursery rhyme each week for five weeks. We had lots of different activities centred around each rhyme, such as making mousey finger puppets for ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’ and setting up our own doctor’s surgery for ‘Miss Polly had a Dolly’. The challenge culminated with the children giving a fantastic performance of all the rhymes for their family and friends.
Many thanks to all our parents who filled in the Rhyme Challenge questionnaires and provided their feedback.
We all loved learning our rhymes so much – we have been learning a new rhyme each week ever since!
