Over to You
Activities by children, for children
As many of you will know, after our Zoom play sessions, and at the end of our Activity Films, we always encourage people to share drawings done at the sessions, and poems, stories, videos and photos of their own creative activities. We’ve been overjoyed by the responses we’ve received and we’re very excited to share them with you here. It’s…Over to you!
Exploring Djibouti with Zainab!
Making Paper Toys with Lily Rose
Take a Turn!
In Porridge & Play we’ve been talking about Ceilidhs. Ceilidh is a Scottish word – in the Gaelic language – which is mostly used now to describe a Dance – with a Scottish band with maybe fiddle and accordion, where people do Scottish country dancing in big groups.
But Ceilidhs have happened in Scotland for hundreds of years and the word ceilidh really just means a get-together or a party. And at ceilidhs, folk do turns!
In this video Andre and Michael do a Turn where Michael reads a poem he wrote in Scots – inspired by a Robert Burns poem called Tae a Moose! – and Andre dances the story of the poem.
Lily Rose’s Turn
CFN member Lily Rose has sent us this fantastic video of her Turn where she performs a poem called ‘A Dug, A Dug’ by Bill Keys. It’s written in Scots language… so see if you can guess what a DUG is!
Lots of our Over to You creations are inspired by Cooking with Taz, Making with Iona and Exploring with Jack. Visit their pages to find videos by our actor pedagogues and families in these three activity categories!
