Hello everyone it's Alex here!
Welcome to my first blog! I'm going to be posting on here every now and then to let you know all about what's going on in the CBeebies house.
This half term we're celebrating 'Do Someting New' week at CBeebies encouraging everyone to get out there and try something you've never done before, whether it's ice-skating, potato-printing or just eating peas!
So of course, us trusty presenters are all about leading by example so we were first in line to step up and try something new:
Sid and Justin are always first in the lunch queue so when the opportunity came up to try new pairs of food from around the world they were straight in there! They had a great time scoffing peanut butter & "jelly" and nachos and salsa - all in the name of research! Then they tried out some new musical instruments taking their inspiration from Rastamouse's Easy Crew (they're going to need a bit more practice before they're as good as them though!).
Andy and Cerrie were a bit more adventurous; Andy tried new breakfast foods from around the world, like Miso Soup and Croissants and Cerrie tried Edamame Beans and Sharon Fruit for lunch.
It's not all been filling our faces though - this week we'll be learning how to say hello and goodbye in different languages with the fantastic new 'Lingo Show' and Sid and Mister Maker are going to be dressing up and learning a new dance rountine!
If you want to join in with your kids and do something new this half term, there are some great ideas to get you started on the grown-ups site:
Please get it touch and tell me if you've tried any of the activities or if you've got ideas to share with other parents of new things you've tried and enjoyed this half term.
In other news, watch out for our friend Katy from I Can Cook - she's going to be joining us onscreen from time to time over the next few weeks.
I'll be back soon with some more Cbeebies news.
All the best,
