Hi, Middle Street!
11th June 2020
It's S-U-M-M-E-R!!! But where has our sunshine gone? No matter, we can still have fun, and this week we are celebrating how utterly BRILLIANT human beings are!
We've got plenty of stories, singing dancing, drawing. There's a cheeky theatre show from London; fantastic author Cressida Cowell reading the WHOLE of How To Train Your Dragon; impossibly brilliant people dancing with KAPOW!; dancers sliding around as if they're made of jelly; heartwarmingly kind children and your chance to boost your drawing skills and learn how to make a time capsule! Scroll down and find out more....
Check back here next week. There'll be plenty more creative fun ideas every Thursday during lockdown!
We're starting off with some theatre! From London's Unicorn Theatre, let's watch this superb show, all about the cheeky, mischievious spider Brother Anansi...
Now get ready to be blown away by these amazing dancers! People are INCREDIBLE!
After this, it's your turn to dance, and it's a long one, a mega workout! Ready?
Time for a rest after all that bopping!
Let's see how Peppa Pig and friends make a time capsule. Below you'll learn how to make one of your own. If you don't have a garden, perhaps you could ask an adult to hide it somewhere at home and then they can give it back to you when YOU are an adult!
Now the brilliant Cressida Cowell is here to read the WHOLE of How To Train Your Dragon! Amaaaaazinnnnnnggggg! When you get to the end of this video, look to see what video is up next - YouTube should show you all the videos in the right order. Enjoy!
Music time now! Do you remember we watched some dancers from India in assembly once? Here's the song they were dancing to, and below you can watch them again. Can you copy some of the moves?
Wowwww, so cool!

If you ever feel sad, please always remember that you are not alone. There is always someone there who cares for you. Let's listen to the story, draw along with artist Jon Burgerman, and sing the song.
