These Listen and Play activities have been designed to engage children and reward them for listening carefully to fun stories featuring popular nursery rhymes.
Your child is encouraged to listen to the story and hit the space bar when they hear the nursery rhyme. This simple interaction triggers an animation on screen. This reward will help to focus your child’s listening.
How to extend the fun
Print out a picture from the story for your child to colour in. Try the other Listen and Play activities and discover more of your favourite nursery rhymes, as well as adventures featuring Raa Raa The Noisy Lion. You can visit CBeebies Radio where you’ll have the chance to listen to even more stories – you can even download them to take away with you.
How to make a magic moment
Sit with your child and let them take the lead. Have fun singing the nursery rhyme together. Try encouraging your child to let you know when they hear their favourite parts from the Listen and Play activity. Be aware –they just might want to listen and listen again to their favourite ones! That’s great for reinforcing listening skills.
