By Helen Bromley — Yellow Door

In the second of three articles, we explore the rich possibilities for playing with words in Hey Diddle Diddle

A repertoire of nursery rhymes is ideal for developing the awareness of rhythm, rhyme and alliteration, which underpins learning to read and write. This month we look at Hey Diddle Diddle and how its use of supposedly nonsensical language allows children to explore the structure in their own language and writing.
