Children’s song, U.K.

“Ring a Ring o’ Roses (Ring Around the Rosie)” is a nursery rhyme and singing game. The first known record is from Kate Greenaway’s “Old Nursery Rhymes” (Mother Goose) in 1881. Concerning the meaning of the lyrics and the game, folklorists believe they are of pagan origins, while more recent readings, which appeared in the mid-twentieth century, associate the meaning with the Great Plague which happened in England in 1665, or with earlier outbreaks of the Black Death in England.

“Ring a Ring o’ Roses (Ring Around the Rosie)”  Teaching idea and activities

The singing game follows the next movements: make a circle while singing and dance altogether at the same direction.  At the end (“we all fall down”) everyone falls to the ground (give specific directions to children to bend their knees first).

Another version, in order to learn a “curtsy”, is to ask a child to be the “rose” in the centre of the circle and at the end the other children take a bow around him/her, like a curtsy.
