Celebrate Ralph’s birthday with a special themed class with all of Ralph’s favourite teddy bear songs. Invite all the children to bring their teddies to Ralph’s birthday party. They can all wear their party clothes. Make sure Ralph brings a few spare friends of his own too (for those that forget to bring their own teddies!)

Activities

  • Ralph’s Birthday Poem – This is a short action poem which encourages children to count to three. Play the track and do the actions with the children as they prepare for the party
  • Ralph’s Birthday Story – This is a short recorded story which you could use as a quiet activity by getting the children to lay down and listen to it. It tells about Ralph not liking balloons then discovering how fun they can be. You could do this before playing with lots of balloons and would add nice contrast.
