A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Carole Ward, Lionel Morton
In the story chair, Anne Abady who tells her own story "The Story of Oozit"
Lionel brings his guitar again to Play School this week, and today he finds a different song to sing to each of the toys in turn. On Tuesday Carole and Lionel dress up as space-travellers. Lionel reads a picture book on Wednesday about London, and through the windows there is a double-decker London bus being washed. Through the windows on Thursday there is the elephant Toto having a bath. On Friday, Carole does an experiment with a candle and a jam jar.
