That's the way to do it!

Year 3 were lucky enough to have a visit from a live puppet show! Tony the Puppet Man showed us the different types of puppets you can have, gave us a demonstration of how to create your own puppet, showed us a Punch & Judy show and even performed some magic tricks!

Tony was showing us string puppets - they were quite tricky to use!

The crocodile puppet could snap his jaws together. Tony explained how using different materials could create different effects, by making the crocodile's jaws out of wood it meant that they would make a great cracking sound!

This cheeky dog puppet kept eating the props for the magic trick! Luckily, we had a magic wand to keep order.

The magic tricks included a psychic monkey puppet...Some of the children were able to become magicians themselves to help out!

Altogether we had a fantastic time and have been inspired to create our own puppets which we will be showing at the exhibition at the end of term.
