The topics chosen for the term are linked to allow a natural progression of ideas to flow from week to week. The main theme is growth: plants, baby animals, giants, growing up; things found high up, low down and which stretch; a song and music that 'grows'.
Programme 1: Matilda's Day in the Garden SELB number: RK 0591
Broadcast Date: 14 January 2003
All this term we will be looking at different aspects of the theme growth. We begin with plants and the conditions they need to grow, and discuss the infinite variety of plants that grow from different types of seeds.
Growth is the theme this term, and this week Libby and Michael will be looking at 'growing up'. What have the young listeners learnt to do in their five or six years, and what does it mean to be 'grown up'?
Following on from last week's programme about things we find high up, this time Libby and Michael will be looking at all sorts of things underfoot, including footprints in the snow or sand and hard and soft surfaces, all illustrated with a variety of poems.
