Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Knowing the tune, words, rhythm and actions of a nursery rhyme makes it entertaining for the audience.
  2. Nursery rhymes follow either a rhythm or tune to keep to or in some nursery rhymes, both.
  3. Some nursery rhymes can be preferred by others compared to other nursery rhymes.
  4. Commenting on performances by highlighting what went well supports others to improve their performance.
  5. Your personal response can be explained by using because.

Common misconception

Pupils may struggle to give a reason for their opinion.

Model lots of examples using 'because' to expand upon their choice. Call on confident pupils to share their reasons for their opinions and give lots of praise for using 'because' in a sentence.
