| Year 2

This term, the children will be designing and making their own puppets. They have worked in groups to explore a selection of different puppets to develop their understanding further of how materials can be joined together. Differences and similarities were noted and the pupils were quick to offer their own suggestions for designs and characters. They have started the design process of drawing and labelling a puppet and thinking carefully about the resources they will need to create their own.

The children also enjoyed learning the history behind puppets, how they are used to tell stories, re-enact events around the world and how they embrace different cultures.
