Birthdays, candles, cakes… what a fun celebration!
Iona Licketyspit shares what happened in last week’s Big Porridge & Play Online – you’ll see for yourself how much fun we had in the picture gallery!
What an energetic, exciting session! We started things off with ICKERICKEROO, a fantastic song where we discovered our lug listeners (ears), our eye peepers (eyes), our bread baskets (tummies) and our chin wagglers (chins)!
After a fantastic BIG AS A BEAR warm up, we dived into some magical games, and what adventures we had! Whistles were played as we soared to the moon in MAGIC BALL! We met the happy horse, the funky cat, sneaky cheetah, and the exhausted whale in FUNKY CHICKEN… yawn yawn yawn!
Then, we met the best bakers in the whole wide world in LET’S BAKE A CAKE! We dressed up in our chefs aprons and hats, becoming a whole group of fantasticosical chefs! We filled a cake with strawberries, plums, raspberries, grapes, white chocolate, flour and sugar. We then decorated it with every flavour of crisps imaginable, mango ice-cream, spiders and coffee, yum! And would you believe it, we had two Lickety-Birthdays – Ruta turned 7, and Queen turned 8 – so we each lit a candle and with cups of tea in hand, sang Happy Birthday!
In the MAGIC BALL, we landed atop snowy mountain peaks, and flew up and away on snow-mobiles, off into the sky. We flew up, up, up and then swooped down into an enormous cake spotted by Taiwo! There we met a Cakey Lady who had lived inside this cake with her Cakey Sister (Zainab) for 100 years! They were both rather fed up of cake life and really wanted to go to the moon, so Aliya played her whistle and up we went! Once on the moon we did some moon dancing in moonsuits, and then Yumna led us back to the magic ball!
What a brilliant adventure!
