Nursery Rhyme: HUMPTY DUMPTY

Humpty Dumpty poem

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King’s horses, And all the King’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again!

The History and Origins of the Rhyme
Humpty Dumpty was in fact believed to be a large cannon! It was used during the English Civil War ( 1642 - 1649) in the Siege of Colchester (13 Jun 1648 - 27 Aug 1648). Colchester was strongly fortified by the Royalists and was laid to siege by the Parliamentarians (Roundheads). In 1648 the town of C
olchester was a walled town with a castle and several churches and was protected by the city wall. Standing immediately adjacent the city wall, was St Mary’s Church. A huge cannon, colloquially called Humpty Dumpty, was strategically placed on the wall next to St Mary’s Church.

Hickory, Dickory Dock

Nursery Rhyme & History

The UN designated April 22 Earth Day and April Earth Month.

Earth Day is a very special day specifically designed for all of us to think about earth issues . It is not only a special day in the town where we live, but a day that the whole world participates in! Often there are celebrations, events or campaigns that concern us with earth matters.

Some towns have Earth Day celebrations, and some people and groups participate in Earth Day projects.

You can participate in one of the existing projects, or start one of your own. Perhaps a small project with your mom or dad such as planting a tree, or a large project with your classroom or neighborhood friends such as a park clean up. The possibilities are endless. Try to think of something you would like to do-you too, can make a difference!

Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

SAFE CROSS CODE

One, two, three, safe cross,

Four, five, six, safe cross,

One, two, three, four, five, six,

Safe cross code!

Remember,
One, look for a safe place
Two, don’t hurry, stop and wait,
Three, look all around and listen,
before you cross the road,
Remember,
Four, let all the traffic pass you,
Five, then walking straight across you,
Six, keep watching,
That’s the safe cross code!

Safe place, stop and wait,
Safe place, stop and wait,
Safe ground, look around,

Listen for a traffic sound,
If traffic’s coming let it pass,
Until the road is clear at last,
Then walking straight across the road,
keep watching, that’s the code!

Remember,
One, look for a safe place
Two, don’t hurry, stop and wait,
Three, look all around and listen,
before you cross the road,
Remember,
Four, let all the traffic pass you,
Five, then walking straight across you,
Six, keep watching,
That’s the safe cross code,

That’s the safe cross code,
Know the safe cross code,
Know the code!

Nursery Rhyme: CACKLE, CACKLE, MOTHER GOOSE

Cackle, Cackle, Mother Goose

Cackle, cackle, Mother Goose,
Have you any feathers loose?
Truly have I, pretty fellow,
Half enough to fill a pillow.
Here are quills, take one or two,
And down to make a bed for you.

Nursery Rhyme origins and history

The old nursery rhyme ’Cackle, cackle, Mother Goose’ clearly describes to a child the various usage that a goose has to offer - but why Mother Goose? The Origins of Mother Goose and the Identity of Mother Goose gives some answers to this question!  The phrase ’ Mother Goose ’ probably originates from the 1600’s - which coincides with the era of the great witch hunts. Comparisons can be made between  Mother Goose the popular conception of a witch during this period! The old illustration below of Mother Goose depicts an old crone, or witch, flying on a goose (instead of a broomstick). The first line of the Nursery Rhyme is ’Cackle, cackle, Mother Goose’  - descriptions of witches generally include reference to her ’cackle’. This word originally described the noise that a goose would make. More interesting information regarding the connection between Mother Goose and the witch can be via the above links.
