Pumpkins and Magic

This is a radio program to encourage listening skills. There are some notes to give you some ideas to join in whilst listening or to follow up afterwards.

Listening game: kitchen sounds.

 

Song: 'We like magic' (tune: ‘Frere Jacques’)

We like magic,
We like magic,
Yes we do,
Yes we do.

I can make some magic,
I can make some magic,
So can you,
So can you.

 

Help children to tap with a steady beat as they wave their ‘magic wands’- also to consolidate ‘moving into writing’ actions (see extension activities).

 

Story time: 'Cinderella'

 

Final song: 'Cinders put the kettle on'

Cinders put the kettle on,
Cinders put the kettle on,
Cinders put the kettle on,
We’ll all have tea.

Cinders take it off again,
Cinders take it off again,
Cinders take it off again,
They’ve all gone away.

 

Encourage children to clap with a steady beat as they sing the song.

 

Follow-up ideas:

  • Discussion; Encourage the children to talk about Fairy Godmothers and magic wishes, discuss what their magic wish would be? Make ‘magic potions’ (opportunity to discuss medicine safety) and magic wands.

  • Make a collection of different sorts of shoes: high heels, trainers, sandals, babies booties - discuss pairs, sizes, fastenings (velcro, laces, buckles), heels. Whose shoes could they be? Where might you wear them?

  • Make some pumpkin soup.
