During the song

  • Hand out cards with the following on them to small groups of children (2–4)
  • As they listen to the song, they put the lines in the correct order
  • This is a lovely song to sing along to as the rhyme encourages children to practice the /ɔː/ sound
He goes to bed And doesn't get up in the morning
The old man is snoring it's pouring
It's raining and he bumps his head
