Bellrock Nursery session 2

East Centre Ward Residency

Welcome to the Storyplay For The Planet blog, where we share the stories of all the adventures
we’ve had! Get in touch to find out how to join.

We were back at Bellrock Nursery on Friday 10th December for our second Storyplay for the Planet session! 

It was a glorious session once again at Bellrock primary school with lots of fun packed into it. We had some newcomers, but everyone who came last remembered our Big as a Bear warm-up, and our newcomers picked it up so fast with a big roar, we got through it all as fast as a hare!

Funky Chicken was incredible with so many interesting and diverse animals including Albie’s Barking Dog where we all became this funky creature. Our wonderful Storyplay Champion Josephine also had to have a go showing us her Snapping Crocodile. We also saw the noisy sheep and Macie’s Happy Cat. There were so many animals we could have filled a Licketyspit zoo!

Dressing Up was a whole bag of fun, where we dressed up as creatures in Mr Wolf’s Forest. We had Theo’s superhero, Jason’s Spider Man and Jason’s Snake, along with all sorts of other interesting animals, including a mischievous wolf…

This Wolf was the only wolf in the whole forest who could tell time, which led us into our game What’s the time, Mr Wolf? Ruby wolf, our actor-pedagogue was our first Wolf, thinking about cutting down trees, flying a jet aeroplane and digging up plants. Our kind and thoughtful participants said not to, saying that we needed to think about whether the birds would get stuck in the jet. Robbie said the birds would get hurt, and others thought that the plane would get stuck in the trees and the garden would be ruined, which wouldn’t be good, so we managed to change the wolf’s mind!

Next, we got to meet Tommy’s wolf, Wolfie, who built a house and took us dancing before dinner time! Then Jackson and Myriam became howling wolves, getting us all to join in with their wolf cries.

Once we’d come up with our ideas, we started drawing!

Reflective drawings and gallery were extra special with lots of belly bows all around and many exceptional drawings and things to say about them. Everyone really appreciated the sharing around the semi-circle.

Storyplay For The Planet

A series of Storyplay & Have Your Say Through Play sessions for families with 3-12 year olds in East Centre Ward.

Licketyspit will deliver sessions in schools, nurseries and online for communities across the East Centre Ward to support confidence, parental engagement, relationships and children’s rights.

The school groups will receive an introductory Storyplay session, followed by a Have your Say Through Play session to support the children to express their thoughts, feelings & ideas about Climate Change using imaginary play.

These sessions will be a chance for families to explore the issue of climate change and share their feelings about it creatively, elevating children’s voices and demonstrating the power of imagination to find solutions to the greatest collective challenge of our time!
