Saturday 17 October 2020
It was great to get back to Big Porridge & Play this Saturday after a week’s break – and we have 8 more weeks of Saturday sessions to look forward to! Hooray! What a brilliant time we had! We played 👵 GRANDMA GRANDMA and 🐔 FUNKY CHICKEN, went on an epic 🔮 MAGIC BALL adventure – and also enjoyed a brand new game called the HELLO GAME!
Celebrating our multi-lingual network!
Did you know that there are 158 different languages spoken in Glasgow?! Wow! We found this out last week, and so decided to invent the HELLO GAME to find out some of the languages that are spoken in the group – and it turned out there were SO many! Here are some of the ways we learnt to say HELLO to each other this week:
👋 In Kurdish – Salaam
👋🏿 In Yoruba – Bawo ni
👋🏾 In Shona – Mhoroi Mhoroi
👋🏿 In Hungarian – Szia
👋🏻 In Urdu – Assalamu alaikum
But then, we found the Magic Ball!
🚀 After flying through the stars in a spaceship we found ourselves in a land where everything was pink!
🎣 Make spotted a hungry golden fish who asked for some little fish to eat, so Ala and Ruta handed out some fishing rods and we all went fishing! Mohammed caught the teeniest tiniest fish – who started to speak! “Excuse me, I didn’t want to be caught!”, she said, “but would you join me at my underwater tea party?”
🧁 The little fish gave us magic dust to rub on our foreheads so that we could breathe underwater, and down we went – and ate some delicious cup cakes!
🦈 Suddenly, a family of sharks appeared (Queen, Faly and Lydia), so we swam as fast as we could until we reached a cave, full of plants that glowed in the dark. We hid there for a while until the coast was clear, and then made our way back to the magic ball!
🖍️ We finished off with our reflective drawings, which you can see below. What brilliant creative pictures!
See you next week!
