What a happy, energetic and exuberant session we had on Saturday! We learned new ways to say hello, stirred autumn leaves and honey together to make a great big cake – and we went inside a fairytale book in our game of MAGIC BALL!
⭐ In our new HELLO GAME, we learned how to say hello in four new languages – we can’t wait to learn even more next week!
👋🏾 Yoruba – Bawoni
👋🏿 Urdu – As-salaam ‘alykum
👋🏻 Arabic – Marhaba
👋🏾 Wolof – As-salaam ‘alykum
🎂Then, we dressed up marvellously as bakers for LET’S BAKE A CAKE! Chef Virginia & Andre needed everyone’s help to make an enormous cake, so we all put on our hats and aprons, grabbed a wooden spoon and a great big bowl… and off we went! 🎶 ‘Let’s make a cake, let’s make a cake, think of all the things that we like best!’
🍓 We filled the cake with… autumn leaves, honey (Anaya & Ayesha), strawberries, jam, vanilla (Brown), caramel (Abdullah) and runny chocolate (Sayeh). Then we decorated it with bananas and glitter (Lawand) – it was deeeelicious!
🔮 Soon it was time for the MAGIC BALL and this week we landed inside… a fairytale book! At first we were squished between the pages, so we jumped up and down with Lawand until we burst out of the page and into the fairytale!
🏰 We immediately spotted a great big pink castle, so we ran over to it and knocked on the door. There we met a Fairy Queen who only spoke in Fairy Language…Luckily Abdulmateen knew how to speak Fairy so he spoke back and found out that she was hungry and would love some of our cake!
🌲 Afterwards, she gave us each a pair of fairy wings and we flew high above a beautiful forest! We looked down and saw bunnies and we met an owl boy called Fateh who said woot woo!
🦉 When we began to fly back to the magic ball we suddenly realised that we were being chased by dragons! Arghhh!
🐉 We escaped the dragons by landing in a lake, where we had a relaxing swim, closed our eyes and felt the water float around our heads and the sound of the fairies singing!
What a magical adventure – I wonder where we’ll go next week?!
