About Songs and Rhymes Scheme of Work for Nursery 3

The NAPPS Scheme of Work for Nursery 3 is designed to engage children and teach them the joy of music and rhythm. The subject includes a wide range of songs and rhymes that will improve their vocabulary.

Children in Nursery 3 will learn traditional nursery rhymes and modern songs. Singing these regularly will help them develop their vocabulary, pronunciation, and listening skills.

The main aim of the Nursery 3 NAPPS Scheme for Songs and Rhymes is to:

i. Foster a love for music and rhythm in young children. 

ii. Provide a fun and interactive way for children to learn and grow through the power of song.

Through catchy tunes, children can learn about numbers, colors, animals, and other foundational topics. They learn to sing together, follow the rhythm, and enjoy the collective experience of making music.
