Hi-5 - Communicate! Monday July 2 - Friday July 2

communicate (11/45)

Australian kids’ entertainers Hi-5 continue their ninth series. The popular fivesome – Nathan, Tim, Charli, Kellie and Sun (who replaces Kathleen during her maternity leave), along with puppets Jup Jup and Chatterbox – appeal to a wide range of children, as they make learning fun through music, movement and laughter.

This week’s theme is ‘Communicate’, while the song is ‘Stop and Go’. Today’s episode, ‘Body Language’, sees Kellie make some interesting shapes with her body, while Charli explores motor skills and emotion recognition.

In Tuesday’s show, ‘Ways of Saying’, Nathan the Weather Man forecasts the Hi-5 weather using symbols on a chart. Tim uses his collection of musical instruments to make sporting sounds.

Wednesday’s show is ‘Technology’. Nathan receives mysterious shape messages on his laptop computer and works out what they mean.

On Thursday, ‘Animals’ sees Charli practise yoga and do a banana dance, while Sun pretends to be a big gorilla.

Rounding off the week’s episodes is ‘The Arts’ on Friday. Charli creates two sculptures from clay, and Tim discovers that his easel can play music.
