P2 Session 2 – Miltonbank

Monday 16th March 2020

We had our second Storyplay session with Miltonbank’s P2’s outside! When we got cold we went into the hall.

At the end of the session we found words to describe how we felt playing these games together today and people said –  Good and  Happy, some people felt a bit tired and out of sorts because of everything that’s been going on but we also felt excited, surprised and even crazy and awesome!!

We did two different Licketyspit Warm-Up’s! We made ourselves as Big as a Bear and as Thin as a Pin and as Wobbly as a Jelly on a Plate! What other rhymes are there in our warm-ups?

We met some very excitable animals today! Babeker introduced us to the Teleporting Lion! Iona said hello to the Cheaty-Dancing Monkey! Julie welcomed the Happy Lion and we met Lexi’s Funky Monkey! We weren’t too scared to meet Liam’s Angry Lion!

We had a wonderful game of Flying Balloons. We flew high above Glasgow! Lujain saw a Bird and Iona saw a Dragon!

This game can played anywhere! Even in your front room. Remember all you need is your balloon and your imagination, that can take you anywhere you want! Tell us what you can see?!

Monsters Footsteps and new game Lets Bake a Cake were favourite games.

We put on our chef hats and our aprons and picked up our wooden spoons and we all baked a huge CAKE!! What ingredients were in our cake this week? Can you remember how the rhyme goes?

‘Let’s Bake a Cake, let’s bake a cake! Think of all the things that we like best! A little bit of this, a little bit of that, what shall we put I next?..’

We had such a brilliant play session today! We loved playing outside with the P2’s. We’re sad that we weren’t able to do Porridge & Play as planned but we’ll have lots going on that you can join in with online. Scroll down for more details!

We had another excellent Lickety Art Gallery!

That’s monsters’ footsteps, and that’s the granny and that’s the bear! My favourite game was monsters footsteps! It made me feel a bit crazy when we played it!


That’s stairs there, V: could it be a castle? L: yeah it’s a castle and that’s more stairs! V: is it Mrs Mary Mac who bumped her head going up the stairs?! L: yes! I felt happy playing the games today!


That’s the cake we baked! There’s blue die in the cake! That there is Miss Mary Mac falling down at the bottom of the stairs! I loved the balloon game we played today!


That’s Granny! That’s Zara there! She’s making a big noise! V: she made a funny noise with the big dog! L: that’s my mum at work! I felt good playing outside!


That’s the granny game and the monster trees! That’s a bush, and that’s flowers and grass!  My favourite games were all the songs today and I felt happy when we played today!


That’s monsters footsteps. That’s James and I’m trying to get to there and he’s trying to get me! That’s the sun and clouds and there’s fence. V: how did it make you feel? It made me feel excited and awesome!


That’s me eating fruit when I was a granny! That’s Rylan there. V: is that when he’s being a monster tree? J: yeah it is! V: was that your favourite game? J: yeah!
