P5 pupils at Rhu Primary have spent this term reading and examining scripts. They have looked at the different features of play scripts and then used this knowledge to plan and write their own short puppet show scripts in co-operative learning groups. They chose the Rhu Primary ‘school bees’ as their morals behind their stories, such as ‘Be Hardworking’, ‘Be Honest’ and ‘Be Responsible’.
They then created sock puppets and props for their puppet shows and had three rehearsals before performing to classes throughout the school as well as their parents. The pupils asked for a 50p donation to raise money for their two chosen charities: Cancer Research and SSPCA; and they managed to raise over £102. A great success all round.
