Everyone was raring to go as soon as they arrived with a fabulous Dance Warm-Up! In this session we went exploring to find out what kind of games everyone likes to play when they’re not at Licketyspit and we got so many games from all of you! It was amazing! Priscilla told us about Hopscotch, Genesis told us about Hide n Seek and we learnt so many different kinds of Tag... There was Chaos Tag, where everyone is ‘it’ and if you Tag someone at the same time you have to do Rock, Paper Scissors to see who’s out Disco Tag where you have to do a dance move if someone tags you and you can only be freed when someone copies you Toilet Tag where [...]

Block 3 Week 5 of Porridge & Play Castlemilk Wednesday 17th August It was so exciting to hear The Ice Cream Has All Gone again this week. This rhyme was created by everyone at Porridge & Play Castlemilk and this week we made up the actions. How divine! Hadir had remembered lots of the words and everyone helped with creating the actions to help us all remember it. We all had different animal actions for going to the zoo, we went on a train and Melissa gave us the Choo Choo move. Hadir had us floating after we’d all been rowing in the boat and then we started to sink!  Yahye had us jumping up and down for Bubblegum & Lime ice cream! We played The Circle Game and Khadar was ‘It’- he was so fast at catching! We talked about how we could make the game even [...]

Block 3 Week 2 of Porridge & Play Cranhill Thursday 11th August A huge thank you to all of our grown-ups for sharing your childhood games and songs with us today. Isn’t it amazing how there are so many similar games across different continents?  Folashade came up first to teach us all how to play Tinko Tinko which is a clapping game you can play in pairs. Each player starts with one hand facing up and we move our other hand from the other person's hand back to your own, saying ‘Tinko, Tinko, Tinko’ and then clapping your hands together with your friends. You get faster and faster and faster. Some of you were moving so quickly we could barely see your hands meet! It was amazing.  Razieyh told us about a game called Six Houses. You draw out six boxes on the ground [...]

We played a new game shared by Sayeda called the Circle Game! In this game you make a circle out of old clothes or scarves. Everyone but 1 person stands in the circle. You can’t leave the circle and you have to avoid getting tagged by the person outside the circle! The circle gets smaller and smaller the less people that are inside it until everyone is outside the circle! We have taggers and those who are tagged, lots of roles and turn taking and everyone gets to be included! As we all know at Licketyspit, games are best played when [...]

It was the week of the Upside Down Trouser Dance!

2022-08-16T10:54:58+00:00

Welcome to the Big Porridge & Play Online blog where we share our stories and adventures! Friday 22nd July It was the week of the Upside Down Trouser Dance!  ‘I’m upside down Trouser Bob and welcome to my silent Disco! All you have to do is place a pair of trousers on your arms, upside down and away you go, DANCE!’ We danced and danced until we landed in the sea, lay on our backs to feel the breeze of Upside Down Trouser Land! Our bellies were full of cake after landing inside Esmerelda’s Cake World. We had to eat our way out and then bake more cake mixture for her to fill the holes with!  Grannies gathered from far and wide! Granny CeeCee from South America! Granny Umberella & Granny Sunglasses joined us from America having just been to a very relaxing musical concert!  Granny Lazy felt like doing nothing! Granny Swoon loved to Swim! All the grannies went into the green Magic Ball today and had a very marvellous time!  At Big Porridge & Play online, we always have the most wonderful time! I wonder where we might go next…!

Storyplay Champions at Making Rights Real Event!

2022-08-19T16:23:59+00:00

Have Your Say Through Play is a children’s human rights-based, fun way to support children under-twelve to explore and share their thoughts, feelings and ideas through Lickety Playcard Play. This project was first developed with our Children & Families Network in September 2020, as a way to consult children about the Covid-19 pandemic. Everyone's Children invited us to join them and have our Storyplay Champions show just how have Have Your Say Through Play works! Tuesday 21st June We had a really fantastic time at the recent Making Rights Real Event online! Our Storyplay Champions led a fantastic 20 minute session where we demonstrated how we can ‘Have our SAY through PLAY!’  We went on a Magic Ball adventure to an underwater school! There we met Professor Seal (Taz) who told us that a new student was joining the school very soon and needed the children to come up with ideas for ways to make them feel welcome and happy, because children know what children need!  Professor Seal asked some questions…  What could we do to make a new student feel welcome at a new school?’ ‘They might need support and food. Maybe after school we could play with them or take them to the park, because we have the right to play and we could be their friends!’ - Fish Felicia  ‘We could sing them a [...]

Block 3 Week 1 of Porridge & Play Cranhill Thursday 4th August A huge thank you to the families of Porridge & Play Cranhill for coming along and sharing your stories with us! After sharing our delicious meal together we all had a great big dance and then we grabbed our Flying Balloons and started our adventure. We visited Temi, Tiwani, Fikayo & Folashade’s house first. We went into their kitchen and cooked a giant meal of spicy chicken and rice, luckily they had some yoghurt in the fridge as well so Fatima and Effie could eat the chicken without it burning their tongues! After we’d eaten we all sat together and sang some of their favourite songs - everyone joined in singing ‘wind the bobbin up, wind the bobbin up, pull, pull, clap clap clap’. They told us that they love singing rock and [...]
