Puppet Workshop

As the hook for the Year 3/4 new topic 'Let Me Entertain You,' we had a visit from a creative entertainer called Joe Ridgley. First of all, we watched him perform a magic and puppet show. It was brilliant and we were all left amazed as to how he performed some of his magic tricks. Then, he introduced us to some of his puppets. We were all totally engaged throughout his performance. After that, we had a workshop with Joe where he taught us how to perform with puppets. He gave us lots of different tips and then we all made our very own sock puppet. It was a great day.
