Hurray! It didn’t rain today! So the Very Young Friends of West Bank Park in York and I were able to go on our ‘Rhyme Time Ramble through the Woods’. (The last time we had tried to go on a Rhyme Time Ramble, the weather was so terrible that the council shut the park!)
After we’d done our Warm Up Rhyme, we greeted Queen Victoria:
Then we wiggly wormed into the wood:
The children – all pre-school – were very observant in the wood. They found worms, and a snail, and a spider’s web, amongst other fascinating things:
So I performed a worm poem, and a snail poem, and a spider poem for them. Amongst other poems …
Then when we got to the Story Tree, she let us have a Rhyme Time Story. Here the children are, listening to my Rhyme Time Story:
Thank you to all the children and their mums/grandmas/carers who came today. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did. What bits did you like best?
Thank you too to Catherine, for organising the event in the first place!
I now look forward to my next Rhyme Time Ramble. I wonder where that will be …
