That's The Way To Do It!

This afternoon, year 3 had a fun-filled time with lots of laughs, when Tony (the puppeteer) put on a spectacular show! He began by telling the children about the history of Punch and Judy where we all learnt that Punch started off as Punchinello because he originally came from Italy. The earliest Punch and Judy show that was written down was in Samuel Pepys diary where he wrote about the show he watched in Covent Garden. We all got to see different types of puppets, such as shadow, marionette and finger puppets which we will be exploring in our DT lessons before we make our own hand puppet.

Overall, the children were impeccably behaved and I hope they came home telling you what a great time they had had!

Below are a few photos showing the highlights of our afternoon.
