Lickety Online Play Sessions!
Join us now
We were very excited to try out our first Lickety Online Play Session last week!
We used the platform Zoom to play with families all over Glasgow – in their living rooms!
It was great fun. We flew up and off round the world in our Balloons. We saw a volcano,
a dinosaur planet, trees that looked like broccoli and so much more.
We sang Grandma Grandma and wriggled down the line and had
LOADS of Funky Chicken animals too like…The Wiggly Worm, the Beautiful Peacock
and the Silly Fish!
The Washing Song!
We’re really looking forward to trying it out again tomorrow!
Lickety Zoom 2!
Wednesday 15th April at 2pm

New Scottish Government Helpline
0800 111 4000
A new national helpline has been set up to provide essential assistance to people who don’t have a network of support but who are at high risk of contracting COVID-19.
It will provide support through your local council, to access: essential food and medication; links to local social work services; emotional support; contact with local volunteer groups.
The helpline is now open, from 9am-5pm, and is for people who:
- do not have family or existing community support
- cannot get online
- who are over 70
- are disabled
- require the support of mental health services
- are pregnant
- receive a flu jab for health reasons
Our friends at ABC Music have released over 70 music lessons free online to do at home!
These include lessons for P1-P5, maths through music, Kitchen Drums for 5-12 year olds and an Early Years livestream session!
Find out more and try the lessons out here.
The International Play Association has created a booklet to help you support your child/children’s play at this critical time. IPA Play in Crisis: support for parents
and carers (click to download). The IPA says: “The International Play Association
recognises playing as a basic and vital part of the pleasure of childhood. We also see it as
an essential part of all aspects of children’s development. During crisis, play has a significant therapeutic role, helping children recover a sense of normality and joy. We hope this free resource will be of use to communities across the world.”
