The Rhyme Challenge

Welcome to the Rhyme Challenge, part of BookTrust Cymru's Pori Drwy Stori programme.

Join us on a journey through rhymes and songs! We’ve chosen 10 fun and varied rhymes in English and Welsh for you to enjoy with your Reception class. Choose the rhymes that will best suit your class, chart your progress on the Rhyme Journey poster, watch our exciting videos online and reward your class with their Rhyme Challenge certificates.

The Rhyme Challenge has been designed to be used in school and at home and to engage parents and carers.
