Bounce and rhyme popular with toddlers
More than 80 toddlers and their families took part in the ‘The Rhyme Challenge’ at Exmouth’s Children’s Centre.
The challenge is an innovative new way to help toddlers learn through poetry and has been successfully trialled at the centre over the summer term by working with Bookstart and local toddler groups.
The challenge is a fun way to encourage children and their families to learn to sing and share rhymes together.
The toddlers’ groups were supported in the challenge by the centre’s outreach worker Cara Stratford and early year’s worker Emily Roantree. They visited each toddler group and ran special ‘Bounce and Rhyme’ activities for the families who attended.
And last week they turned out to The Rhyme Challenge at the centre in Moorfield Road

Cara Stratford, said: “Singing and saying rhymes can help your child develop language skills, introduce concepts such as shapes, colour and numbers and is also great for developing concentration and listening skills.
“The best thing is that it is fun and free for you and your child to do together and the whole family can join in too.”
