Plus we will discuss how Little Red makes some cakes for her grandma and how and when we should have treats! Looking at healthy choices and limiting our sugar intake.

Weds 6th April – The Three Little Pigs with Gilly
We’ll huff and we’ll puff and we’ll get making some stuff! Using the classic story of The Three Little Pigs, today’s session will be a mixture of movement and craft! We will explore the story through a playful yoga session then finish with decorating little plant pot piggy’s for you to keep! Through planting we will explore growing your own food and through Yoga mindfulness and meditation to support wellbeing.

Thursday 7th April – Cinderella with Yemi
Explore the traditional story of Cinderella in the style of soul and RnB, inspired by the Whitney Houston & Brandy musical version. Using song-writing, singing & movement we will explore issues around image. How we feel and think about how we look, how others look and how to celebrate difference. We will think about how keeping healthy can help to keep us happy.

Friday 8th April- Anansi the spider with Maisha
Telling the African folklore tale of the wonderful rogue mischief maker, a wise and loveable creature who triumphs in the Ashanti tale. Told through physical movement and dance we will learn about how smart can be equal to strong and how everyone has different skills, but that kindness and empathy are values we should all nurture.
