5 Currant Buns in the Bakers Shop

5 currant buns in the baker’s shop

Round and fat, with a cherry on the top.

Along came ……. with a penny one day,

Bought a currant bun and took it right away.

4 currant buns in the baker’s shop….

etc. until

No currant buns in the baker’s shop,

Round and fat with a cherry on the top!

Find or make some props and insert children’s names into the rhyme.  Let them exchange a ‘penny’ for a currant bun!

Very good for early use of number and also for learning that one object (the penny) can be exchanged or stand for another!)
