Toddler Time online presents to you the Cutty Sark Adventure Series! Bring your little sailors along for songs, stories and playtime as the ever popular toddler time comes to your home. Fun will be had by parents and children, so join us as we board the imaginary Cutty Sark.

Stay home, stay safe and take the opportunity to discover and learn with our live online workshops.

Wednesday mornings are dedicated to our youngest audiences. Become a sailor, sing, dance, listen and play through engaging stories about the Cutty Sark, one of the fastest tea clippers in the world. Joining Captain Woodget and his jolly crew, you will take part in their quest for cargo across the seven seas. Each week we recommend a craft activity to do that week, and there will be an opportunity to Show & Tell in the following session. 

This live and interactive session will put a smile on everyone’s face as well make you feel part of the crew without even going on a ship.

How do I join a Live Online Workshop?

  1. Follow the link to book your place via RMG bookings.
  2. Once you have booked your ticket, you will receive an email confirming your place on your chosen live online workshop. The email will contain a link and password to the prescheduled workshop.
  3. When it is time for your scheduled event, click the link on your email. This will take you to your chosen event which is being hosted through an application called Zoom. You will be asked for your meeting ID and Password. These should come up automatically, but if not they can be found on your original email.
  4. Once you’re in the workshop, you will be asked to choose to connect audio in three different ways. We recommend using computer audio.
  5. If you sign in before the workshop begins you will be asked to wait in a virtual waiting room.
  6. When the workshop begins please have your video on so we can make sure everyone is who they say they are. After this, you can choose to have your video on or off. We will only interact with participants who have their camera on. If you do not want to be interacted with please switch off your camera.
  7. When the session starts, have your camera pointing at eye level and your microphone on mute. You can control your microphone and video on the bottom of the Zoom page.
  8. The facilitator will ask questions and if you would like to answer a question, the host will unmute your microphone for you to talk directly to them. Please note that you are in a session with many other participants, so be considerate of others.
  9. There is a chat room attached to the workshop room. Please use this for technical questions such as my audio is not working etc. Our host will assist you as best as they can.
  10. If you are planning to keep your video on please be mindful of what’s behind you. Think about having a solid wall behind you or turning on the virtual background if you would like some privacy.
  11. These sessions are monitored at all times. Any behaviour deemed to be inappropriate will result in participants being removed from the session and being reported to the appropriate authorities where necessary.
  12. We support independent learning for children but we hold the safety and well-being of children in higher regard. Therefore we ask that an adult is present when children are partaking.
  13. Extra activities may be suggested at the end of the session. Links for additional tasks will be put in the chat room for further learning. Your host will inform you when the session is finished. When you have finished, close your tab and sign out of Zoom if you signed in at the beginning.
