Zoom, zoom, zoom

This is a great nursery rhyme which can be told as song or a story.

This rhyme can be told as a song or as a story. You can act it out with your child, by putting movements to the words.

You can also have your child on your knee. Act like they’re the rocket and lift them up at ‘blast off!’.

The song goes like this:

“Zoom, zoom, zoom,

We are going to the moon.

Zoom, zoom, zoom,

I hope we get there soon.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

Blast off!”

Good to know

Nursery rhymes introduce the idea of a beginning and end, which children will start to use once they tell stories.
