I really enjoyed seeing everyone for the open session on Saturday. Thanks to a whopping 35 families taking part, it was funny, cheery, and full of ideas!
👵 Starting with GRANDMA GRANDMA was an absolute delight as so many faces lit up as we sang the song and did the actions with lots of groovy movement throughout. We took our dancing to the next level with our warm-up – I loved seeing all the flossing in the screens as well as the other equally brilliant dance moves you all led!
🌈 We then said hello to everyone and played our new game OPEN MY BOX – which had a lot of amazing reactions from everyone to what was inside. From Taiwo and Ope’s Blue Car that we got to drive in, and Abdal and Priscilla’s Rainbow Slide which we got to play on slipping and sliding into a rainbow adventure, everyone’s suggestions were so active and imaginative.
🐺 I loved then seeing everyone dressed as wonderful wildlife creatures for MR. WOLF. Lawand’s Mr Wolf and others were a delight, as the wolves and the forest animals played together so wonderfully as we built the world they lived in.
🦖 Our MAGIC BALL trip was filled with adventure! We entered a dark dungeon, spotted a huge dinosaur who had been transformed by Evil Wizard Meerab, saved a princess who lived in a castle, flew into space, landed on the moon, met an alien, and even found a magic potion that managed to turn the Evil Wizard good!
🎵 Our reflective drawing was an absolute treat, only made better by having Iona with us in spirit as we played one of her songs. Her beautiful song inspired many rich drawings and some absolutely incredible writing from some participants, who even read them out to us. My highlight came at the end as I got to lead my first Magic Clap!
Thank you, everyone, for being so wonderful.
