A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Julie Stevens, Lionel Morton
Today's story is called "Follow This Line" by Michael O'Leary
"O we can play on the big bass drum,
And this is the music to it;
Boom-boom-boom goes the big bass drum,
And that's the way we do it!"
Drums, cymbals, guitars, and a wobble board are some of the musical instruments Julie and Lionel make and play each day this week. Some musicians who go on a journey-and keep playing all the time-come into today's picturebook story. On Dressing-up Day the toys go to the park to listen to a band, and later on in the week the windows show new bells being made and tested in a foundry. There are many favourite songs and nursery rhymes in Play School this week, but on Friday Lionel sings a new song of his own.
