Stories, Songs and Rhymes
In this short course, we will explore how sharing stories, songs and rhymes help your child to develop imagination, as well as listening, reading and number skills. We will make simple instruments and resources to use with your child at home and use songs and rhymes to make learning fun. And don't worry - you don't need to have Adele level skills and you won't be asked to sing in public - unless of course you really want to! Prosp User 3
