Takaka Playcentre continue to run Playcentre sessions on their regular days via skype and encourage families to share what they have been up to in their bubbles to give inspiration to everyone.
Recently their skype sessions have been centred around music and singing songs that the tamariki are all familiar with as well as a few new ones. It has also inspired children to make pois at home, set up a teddy bears picnic, use puppets, learn new songs and continue to talk about their friends and experiences even though they are not physically at Playcentre.
In this awesome video, Lili Bridger wanted Dad (Robin) to do the dinosaur song which has proven to be a favourite in their skype catch ups and has all the parents being big scary dinosaurs around their own lounges.
The lyrics are:
Listen to the chorus of the Brontosaurus
and the Stegosaurus down by the swamp
Along come the dinosaurs making such a loud roar, thumping with their feet going stomp, stomp, stomp
Here’s the Pterodactyl long wings flapping, big teeth snapping down by the sea
Here comes the Mammoth tusks all curly, joins the hurly burly, oh dear me
What a noise!
It’s the boys
Of the prehistoric animal brigade
Thanks to Robin, Kana, Lili and Mei for sharing this video of their Playcentre at home and making virtual time so enjoyable.
We can’t wait to see all the prehistoric dinosaurs together at the centre one day soon.
