Building Theme - Any Song Ideas


Recommended Posts


I am just about to start a mini topic on buiding as we are currently having a new nursery built. I will take the children over to the site to look at the work and hopefully have one of the builders in to talk to the children. I am going to set the role play area up as a builders yard using play tools, builders dressing up clothes, clipboards, plans and paint charts etc. I am also going to use the little vanish pots for pots of paints for them to sell in the shop.

We are going to make little bricks out of salt dough and dry them out, cover cereal boxes with red/orange sugar paper and make brick print paper.

I have lots of good ideas, but am struggling with songs to use which fit with the theme. I was going to teach them the Bob the builder song but was hoping someone could come up with other suggestions to help.

Also any ideas of books which would link with this theme would be of great help. I have come up with bob the builder stories and Miss Brick the builders baby.

Many Thanks
