Pirates of Govan!!!

Week 5 of Porridge & Play Govan

Tuesday 8th November

Pirates of Govan!!!

We had some new faces in Govan this week as we said hello to Virginia, Paul and Johnny who came along to join Hilde and the usual Govan Gang.

We all showed Paul and Virginia how to be as Big As A Bear and then had a lovely dance.

Mira saw a fish swimming in the sea and Azeem saw a fish too!

Everyone dressed up as pirates and we ran around the Pirate Ship.

Pirate Mohammed and Pirate Mujahid swabbed the decks and Pirate Shams and Pirate Ohi hoist the sail.

Then there was a knock on the door and to everyone’s surprise a sad Pirate Paul appeared. He was speaking a beautiful language that Hilde said was Punjabi.

Punjabi Pirate Paul was sad because it was his birthday and no-one had made a cake for him!

It was Pirate Agi’s birthday too so everyone baked fantastic cakes for Pirate Paul and Pirate Agi then sang Happy Birthday to them.

What a week in Govan! We can’t wait until the celebration next week.

About the project

Porridge & Play Govan is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund as part of Big Porridge & Play Glasgow.

Licketyspit has run Porridge & Play in many other communities around Glasgow, and started doing online sessions for Govan families in 2020, when the pandemic delayed our launch at the PI. We have also worked at Riverside Primary and we are delighted to finally be running family sessions in person!

You can find more information on Licketyspit here.
