Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre

On Wednesday we had a visit from Clydebuilt  Puppet Theatre. They told us three cautionary tales- The Ungrateful Crocodile which taught us to be kind to others who are kind to us, The Forgotten Treasure which is about being grateful for what you have and a good old favourite Red Riding Hood- The Wolf’s Story.

The children absolutely loved watching the show! There were lots of oohs and aahs and plenty of giggles too. Thank you so much to Steve and Leigh for the wonderful performances.

Cart Mill Puppet Show!

Recently in the home room, the children have shown a big interest in puppets and have been using them to role play.  They have used a variety of puppets such as ones from their favourite stories and some animal puppets to create stories of their own!

The children decided that they would like to create their own puppets and make stories with them.

After creating their own puppets they then decided they wanted to make their own puppet theatre and show so that they could use the puppets. They found resources around the room to make one of their own.

Once the puppet show was complete it was show time!

We’re going on a bear hunt…

Today in the home room the children were retelling stories with puppets and props.

They chose ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and created a back ground for the puppets.

The children had a look for the book but couldn’t find it so they decided to search the internet for an audio version.

“Lets look on you tube, I’ve seen it on there before”

While the story played in the background the children all chose a character to act out parts of the story.

“uh oh! long wavy grass ”

“We’ve got to go through it”

“uh oh. A cave! A narrow gloomy cave.”

“We’ve got to go through it”

“ohh noo  there’s the bear”
