Tuesdays Bounce and Rhyme sessions for toddlers. Term time only. 9.30 - 10am and 11 - 11.30am Experts have discovered that if a child knows eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best at reading and spelling in their class by the time they are in Year 3.
