Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill

to fetch a pale of water.

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got and home did trot

as fast as he could caper.

He went to bed and wrapped his head

in vinegar and brown paper.

  • To show how heavy water can be, get a variety of plastic cups and small buckets and fill them with water. Ask your child to feel the difference in weight. Best done outside. If you are feeling brave and you have lots of children you can do a cup/bucket relay race and the winners can either be the team who is the fastest or the team who has the most water in the cup/bucket at the end of the race. You could even make it an obstacle course.
  • If the weather is good you could also go out and find a nice safe hill to roll down. We sometimes forget the simple pleasures in life and children love rolling around.
  • Why were poor Jack and Jill going up the hill to fetch a bucket of water? A pale is another name for a bucket. It can be very hard climbing up a hill but it is also very hard carrying a heavy bucket of water. The reason why they were getting the water is that we need water to drink and keep clean without it we would not live. Most people nowadays are very lucky that they have access to water just by turning on their tap. But even today like in olden times access to water can be very difficult and children or adults have to walk a long way carrying buckets of water which they have got from streams or wells.
  • Go to audience/schools/films-games-and-songs which is a page of water related activities and songs for young children and click on the song "I Turn on the Tap" (MP3) song at the bottom of the page. It is a catchy song and shows how lucky we are to have access to taps. Whilst you are about it listen to some of the other songs and look at the rest of this page. I am sorry some of the activities on the page concern poo and toilets which might offend some adults but seems to delight youngsters!
  • Like in olden days some wells are still dug by hand. Hand digging a well is a very difficult and dangerous process and cannot be built very deep so the quality of the water is not as good. Although limited resources means that some wells are still being built by hand luckily the majority are now built by machinery. Normally wells are built at the bottom of a hill closer to the water source but wells can be built on hills if it is closer to where enough people are living so that they don't need to walk so far but the well will need to be deeper and therefore should be dug by machinery. If it is deeper the bucket like in Jack and Jill would have to be raised more and as we have mentioned before it can be very heavy.
  • They really did use vinegar in brown paper to heal wounds in the old days. Vinegar is very good at cleaning wounds as it kills bacteria (germs) but it is very smelly. It is much better to put on chips or other food.
  • Jack and Jill is an English nursery rhyme. The earliest known printed version comes from a reprint of John Newbery's Mother Goose's Melody, thought to have been first published in London around 1765 although it is believed the nursery rhyme was around a lot earlier than that possibly the early part of the 17th Century.
