Autumn 1

The number rhyme for Autumn 1 is '5 coloured bottles' (to the tune of '5 green bottles) and goes as follows:

5 coloured bottles, standing on a wall,

5 coloured bottles, standing on a wall,

and when 1 coloured bottle should accidentally fall,

there'll be 4 coloured bottles, standing on the wall.


We count the bottles by pressing/ listening to talking tins and explore the 5 coloured, sensory bottles before we begin. When the bottle falls from the wall, the adult will stop singing and we are encouraged to make a movement to knock the bottle over/ off our tray. We  then tell the adult whether we want to keep on singing or to stop!
