I hope you have had a great time learning about and celebrating Chinese New Year. I also heard that a little boy’s dad celebrated his lockdown birthday too last week so Penblwydd Hapus to you 🎂 We love to celebrate and this week we have lots to celebrate.

Big Welsh Rhyme Time 8th-12th February 2021

Welcome to Big Welsh Rhyme Time 2021! Join in the annual celebration of sharing rhymes, poems and songs. The Big Welsh Rhyme Time takes place across Wales and is aimed at children in the Early Years and Foundation Phase. This week we’ll all sing, rhyme, smile and have lots of fun sharing rhymes together. Each day we’ll be exploring a fantastic new rhyme or song written especially for Big Welsh Rhyme Time by Welsh children’s musicians, poets, writers and illustrators. You may recognise the voice saying these rhymes 😀

The series begins with Jessie and her dog, named Dog, as they watch videos online using a tablet. Together they learn that while the internet can be enjoyable and fun, there are sometimes things online that can be upsetting or scary. Jessie learns that she can always speak to a grown-up who will be able to help her and put down the tablet if there is anything she sees or hears online that makes her feel worried, scared or sad.
