Today a helpful mouse will show us how to count, tell the time and also anticipate and make predictions
This is a fun song to sing together – the sheet has some examples of words and tune you can use
We also have a sheet to help your child understand about telling the time, and you can cut out clock faces to explore further
You might be an opera singer or an undiscovered Rod Stewart, or have a voice like a rusty door – your child will still love to sing with you!
Rhymes and songs are great for learning. They make us feel good and forget our worries for a bit. But also, they help children understand about patterns, words and sounds
Every story has a pattern to it, so you will be preparing your child for a lifetime of successful reading and writing. As well as having a laugh and some fun
