Big Porridge & Play Whiteinch Week 4
22nd May 2019
Licketyspit travelled from the Whiteinch Library to The Tall Ship at Riverside for a brilliant outreach Picnic & Play session!
We began our journey with delighting fellow bus travellers with an excellent rendition of Jelly on His Head! We wanted to share the Lickety songbook with the rest of Glasgow!
Once we boarded the Tall Ship, the group met our friends Old Rodger and the Old Woman! We planted apple trees, watched them tumble down and collected them in our baskets! Old Rodger gave us a big fright which made us all go Hippity Hop!
We then went on an adventure on the Magic Ship travelling to a beautiful and exotic Island! We first did some exploring – finding crabs, beautiful sea shells and a wild unicorn! We then found a tiny cave which we all bravely crawled into and we were rewarded with an amazing white sandy beach with warm turquoise water. We all went for a swim meeting along the way a mermaid! This was a very hungry mermaid who loved eating cake and lots of it! As we swam back to shore two sharks gave us a terrible fright! Luckily, they were very friendly and all they wanted to do was play with us! What an incredible journey we went on today!
The Tall Ship, also known as the Glenlee, is one of only five Clyde built ships still afloat in the world today. It first took to the water in 1896 and circumnavigated the globe four times!
It’s a great free attraction for families and you can find more about its history and programme of events on their website.
