Can you Dance like a Witch in Pants?

Porridge & Play Govan 2023

Wednesday 3rd May

Ha ha haa, the witchy fingers of Govan!

When they dance they whirl and twirl

They might trick you with their witchy words!

We had a fabulous time back at the Pearce Institute this week with our Porridge & Play pals!

The music played and we had a good old boogie around.

We dressed up in marvellous clothes, self-expression was the way.

And of course, some of our four legged friends joined us for Storyplay…

The Bear and Hare and Ox and Fox got us started then others came to join the party!

The Naughty Rabbit which gallops around,

The Jumping Giraffe which goes bounce bounce bouce!

The Good Crocodile which doesn’t go snap,

And don’t forget the Really Nice Cat!

There was the Rawr Tiger and the Dancing Monkey,

And last but not least the Mother Ducky!

Then we flew off in our Flying Balloons and saw fire and sun, perhaps the moon. 

The cold Antarctic lay below…

Next week, I wonder where we’ll go?

Hope to see you there!

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.
