Number rhymes: Five red apples

Number rhymes are vitally important for the early development of number and maths skills. There are many of them but the best tend to have a repetitive theme –  we all know the horrendous ‘ten green bottles’.
‘The Farmer’s Apple Tree’ is a good number rhyme for young children which can be read aloud. It helps with counting down from 5.
I am not sure of the origin of it but it appears in many different forms. This version comes from a forthcoming set from and includes extra pages to colour and write numbers from 1 to 5.
