Some of our "food" counting songs

Our topic this half term has been "Scrumptious". We have been doing lots of activities all around food.


Here are some of our food counting songs that we have been singing in Nursery! Why not encourage your child to sing them at home too?


One Potato

One potato, two potatoes, three poatatoes, Four,

Five potatoes, six potatoes, seven potatoes more,

Eight potatoes, Nine Potatoes, Ten Potatoes too,

Mash them up or put them in a stew!!


Five Currant Buns

Five Currant buns in a bakers shop,

Round and fat with a cherry on the top,

Along came "insert child's name" with a penny one day,

Bought a currant bun and took it away.

(Repeat until no currant buns left)


5 Apples on my Apple Tree

I have 5 apples on my appple tree,

My apple tree, My apple tree,

I have 5 apples on my apple tree,

I'll give one away.


I'll give one to "insert child's name",

To "Insert child's name", to "Child's name", to "child's name",

I'll give one to "Child's name", I'll give one away.

(repeat counting backwards until no apples left)


Ten fat sausages

Ten fat sausages sizzling in a pan,

Ten fat sausages sizzling in a pan,

One went pop and another went bang,

There were eight fat saugages sizzling in a pan.
