Big Play Week

Monday 8th: My Big SHOW Day

Ipdip theatre company will be putting on a performance of their play ‘Anonymouse’:

‘In a hole in the wall of a timber house, on the edge of a wood there lives a mouse...

As the seasons unfold through a cycle of sensory poems (told by a very small, very shy, furry little poet) we meet a writer who has come to the woods for inspiration; and finds the greatest things in the tiniest of spaces. Musical, tactile, curious and sweet, this play is a love letter to living moment to moment. This is a lyrical story created for under fives and their adults to cosy in and enjoy together blending puppetry and poetry.’

 

Tuesday 9th: My Big ACTIVE Day

Active Day will be all about getting moving! The Wee Play will be coming in to run fun, child focused, active sessions designed to help build up flexibility and core strength. Please come wearing trainers and clothes you can move about in.

 

Wednesday 10th: My Big CREATIVE Day

The chance to work your way round a series of stations- each with a different fun, easy craft to make which you can take home and display proudly!

 

Thursday 11th: My Big MUSIC Day

Your child can learn about all different instruments with students from Drumchapel High School coming in to show how their instrument works and how it sounds. We’ll get the chance to make our own music with a bit of song time, and may even make our own instruments to accompany us.

 

Friday 12th: My Big MESSY Day

We’ll be having a lot of fun making a big mess and learning about all different textures, temperatures and materials. Please make sure both you and your child are in old clothes you don’t mind getting messy.

 

Monday 15th: My BIG PLAY Day

Join us at Drumchapel Community Centre to celebrate the end of The Big Play Week and to finish with a bang! This Gala Day style event will feature a variety of child friendly stalls and activities including a petting zoo.
