In the first programme of the school year the presenters, Libby and Michael, introduce
themselves and the series and accustom their young listeners to respond to direct
questions and to ‘answer back’ to the radio/tape.
They will be asking the children to think about where they live, what they like about it,
and what sort of house they live in.
This first in a unit of programmes on the theme, beginning with how we divide our day up (meal times, school, play, bedtime etc.) The children will become more aware of the continuing rhythm of their days, and should have lots to say about the different elements.
NB Libby and Michael pose many questions and it would be an advantage to have the programme on CD and to be prepared to stop it at the appropriate places.
The second in a unit of programmes celebrating words, in which Libby and Michael will be exploring what we can do with them - how we choose them, how words can stretch the imagination, or make you feel.
