10 Little Monkeys Going to the Zoo

This animated rhyme helps children to count to 10 and to recognise the number symbols.






Things to do together:

  • Encourage your child to join in with the words and say the numbers.
  • Encourage your child to talk about what happens - how each different monkey arrives on screen and what they do.
  • Check your child understands what happens - for example, when the porcupine's sharp quills burst the bouncy castle.
