Hi-5 - Monday July 30 - Friday August 3

switching (31/45)

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 ‘Switching’, while the Wordplay phrase is ‘Turn’.

In today’s episode, ‘Changing Looks’, Nathan transforms his bedroom into a sports ground, while Charli plays fingerball and pretends to be a sail on a ship.

In Tuesday’s show, ‘Animals and Nature’, Tim pretends to be a squirrel and joins the annual squirrel Morris Dance.

‘Energy’ on Wednesday sees Sun practise taekwando on a punchbag. Nathan, meanwhile, becomes ‘Energy Man’ while cleaning.

On Thursday, in ‘Moving Places/Houses’, Kellie the travel agent helps Chats decide on a sunny place for a holiday.

Rounding off the week’s episodes is ‘Try it a Different Way’ on Friday. With the help of Chats, Sun and Nathan, Kellie works out a fun new way of saying hello.
