It was great to meet again and talk and remember our journey through the BOG over the SEA into the CAVE and up the MOUNTAIN to find our HEART’S DESIRE! We talked about our Heart’s Desire – whether there was something we’d like most in the world that would make us very happy? You can see the children’s answers below.
We did the whole LicketyLeap adventure again ourselves this week but this week we just did it with a white blanket and two red berets!
We pretended to be Happy Margaret and Worried Margaret popping out from behind the curtain to the music – it was very funny! Then we made the blanket into the bog, the sea, under the sea, the cave, the bear, the bird and the mountain!
In the morning Kyra, Tierney and Junior were the Bear and in the afternoon it was Lexi, Dale and Euan. The bears roared but they cried when we shouted ‘Poo Poo Bear!’ and we had to clap them to make them feel better and feed them! Liam, Lujain, Iona and Babecer were the Bird – and spoke Bird! They carried us all up the mountain on their backs! We looked down far below us and we could see everything – the Fishy Lady in her Boat (Ewan and Julie were the Fishy Lady); the Bear, the bird, the bog, the sea…our houses & people we know!
Junior turned into a brilliant Oogly Boogly Lady in the morning! And so did Lexi in the afternoon!
Everyone remembered the story so well – the fish they’d seen, the treasure they’d found, the fish they’d tasted – the hedgehogs some of us found in the burrow and used our cloaks to hold so we didn’t get prickled!
Lots of our families came to join us and see the film and some of us being Margarets and find out about our adventures! Any parents who would like to watch the whole 90min LicketyLeap film with their child in the library can. We will let you know the times next week!
Thank you for coming! We hope to see you Wednesday the 18th March at 1pm for Porridge & Play!
