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 [...]

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 [...]

We were so lucky to find lots of new games as it was the children’s turn to teach us! We were all very excited to play Khadar and Yahey’s ‘Monster’ game, which involved everyone finding a place to hide so they don’t get caught by the monster. Hadir showed us a great circle game called ‘Balls’ where the same amount of balls as participants are placed in the centre on a plate and they all have a number. One by one, each person runs in [...]
