The experience

Find a cosy area at home and get ready for some wiggling to the Wiggly Woo worm song! 

 

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden

and his name is Wiggly Woo

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden
and all that he can do

is wiggle all night and wiggle all day
He’s wiggling his life away

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden
and his name is Wiggly Woo. 

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden
and his name is Wiggly Woo

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden
and all that he can do

is wiggle all night and wiggle all day
He’s wiggling his life away

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden
and his name is Wiggly Woo 

And his name is Wiggly Woo

And his name is Wiggly Woo.

 

After listening to the song, why not try some imaginary play – encourage physical development by pretending to be a little wiggly worm. How does the worm wiggle and move? You can extend this learning by encouraging your child to copy how other animals move too, while learning about actions like leaping, stomping, shaking and flapping. Let your child take control of their own imagination and follow where it goes.

 

For younger children: place your baby on your lap so that they can enjoy feeling close to you. With toddlers, make sure that you have their attention and eye contact. Say or sing the rhyme, emphasising some of the movements or words such as wiggly woo, worm. Repeat the rhyme, but do so slowly and note the parts that the child seems to recognise. 

 

Have fun!
