Our topic this term is 'Playing Past and Present', we have been exploring toys that children used to play with in the Tudor, Victorian and 20th Century times. We know there have been many changes to toys over the years but we have learnt that some toys have 'stood the test of time', such as the teddy bear or puppets. Last week we learnt about the different types of puppets, from finger puppets to shadow puppets and to large body puppets like they use in the Chinese Dragon Dance. We then picked our favourite style puppet and designed our own puppet before using our designs and instructions to make our very own puppet.
On Friday we used our puppets in a puppet show, it was lots of fun! :)
