Our Favourite Cbeebies Shows

We usually watch Internet tv – so Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube, but sometimes the kiddies just want to watch regular tv shows on Cbeebies. They have loved watching programmes on Cbeebies since they were babies so it’s nice to see they still want to watch some of the programmes. I control the screen time in our house as much as possible. I don’t like the kids being on their tablets or watching TV for hours. And when they do watch their screens, I like them to be as educative as much as they are entertaining.

Here are some of the programmes the kiddies are watching on Cbeebies –

 

Waffle The Wonder Dog Cbeebies

The twins love watching this show. It is about a dog called Waffle who is cute but always up to mischief. I think it is one of the new Cbeebies shows. I can’t remember seeing it some years ago, but it is a good one to watch. I have seen a few episodes with the kiddies and I can see why they like watching it. The Waffle Doggy theme song is also quite catchy. I find myself singing along with it.

 

Topsy and Tim Cbeebies

This show has been around for years now and the twins love it. They can relate with the boy/girl twins, and they find the programme entertaining. I like Topsy and Tim because it is interesting, relatable and very educative. The twins pick up a lot from watching it and they also like the catchy theme song. I must confess I like watching Topsy and Tim as well. I find their family quite entertaining.

 

Numberblocks Cbeebies

My kids are into numbers which is why they enjoy watching Numberblocks. This show is all about the adventures of 10 friends who enjoy counting on each other in Numberland. It is a great way of introducing chidden to numbers and maths. They pick up various ways of adding mew numbers and I hear they even watch this show at school, which just confirms how educative it is. If you are looking at getting your kids to understand numbers some more, this is a great show for them to watch.

 

Let’s Play Cbeebies

Another popular Cbeebies programme in our house is Let’s Play. The kiddies enjoy watching this show a lot. They find the many different episodes very entertaining and that is all thanks to the amazing presenters – Sidney Sloane and Rebecca Keatley. They manage to make every episode so much fun. We like it.

 

Get Well Soon Cbeebies

This show is all about Dr Ranj and friends. It teaches about health and hospitals, and what to expect with healthcare. It is so educative and I am glad my children enjoy watching Get Well Soon on Cbeebies. The Get Well Soon songs are also very catchy. There is a different song for every episode which is so amazing. I wonder how Dr Ranj manages to do all he does.

How to help your child settle into primary school

*Affiliate links.

 

The Kiddies started reception last September and have settled into the primary school routine. They love going to school and enjoy learning, which is great for all of us. I was a bit worried at first when they started, thinking the longer days and school lunch would be an issue, but they handled it all excellently.

Many children struggle at first when they start primary school, especially when they are summer babies. I know my twins (especially my son) had a hard time adjusting to pre school when they started at 3 years old. So I know how hard it can be for parents when the kids don’t settle on time. Here are some tips that may help you help your child settle into primary school quickly.

 

Trial days at primary school

My kids visited the primary school many times before they actually started in September. The Pre School was just down the road from the primary school, so they got to go in many times for some hours before starting. They also had 3 trial days where they spent the whole day at the primary school in the summer before starting in September. Those days helped them settle in quickly as they knew what to expect when they started in September and the routine wasn’t completely new to them.

 

Books about primary school routine

The Kiddies love reading and they learn a lot from the books they read. Reading children’s books about school does help. There are many amazing books available that would help relief the tension and anxiety starting school may bring. The book – First Day at Bug School by Sam Lloyd, helped the kids understand the primary school routine a bit more. First Day at Skeleton School also by Sam Lloyd is another great book to read. 

 

A good routine at home

Having good routine at home does help children settle into primary school quickly. A good routine means the children get to have dinner at a good time and have enough sleep at night to keep them refreshed and ready to learn. Bedtime at our house is 7pm and we try to get the kids in bed and asleep for 7:30pm at the latest.

Being involved

Being involved in what the child does in school does help. So finding at about their day, so you know if there are any issues helps. Doing homework together also helps, as you have a good picture of what your child’s progress at school. Homework for my 5-year-old twins in Reception Class is really about reading and knowing the phonetics sounds.

Also, going in for the pupil progress meetings and stay and play helps the parents stay updated on what happens in the classroom and how the child is coping on a daily basis.

 

What do you think of these tips? How did you help your child settle into primary school? Do you have any tips to share? Please sound off in the comments below.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
