Wharfedale's toddlers getting into Tour de France spirit
11:40am Thursday 26th June 2014 in Local news
Babies and toddlers in Wharfedale and Aireborough have been getting into the Tour de France spirit.
Rhythm Time classes in Otley, Ilkley, Burley-in-Wharfedale and Guiseley have all been featuring events to mark the race's historic visit to the area.
One of the activities has involved creating a giant yellow chain, featuring links made by the children and their parents and carers, that will be used in music sessions.
Local Rhythm Time owner, Lynne O’Malley, said: "We wanted our children and their carers to join in the fun of the Tour and we’ve created a number of ways to make the week memorable.
"In this particular activity, we’re going to see how long our chain will be and then use it in our music classes - the children will love it!"
Lynne has also devised a number of Tour de France related songs for the classes, using tunes the children will easily recognise from their usual sessions.
