The children have enjoyed learning all about animals during the summer term for the topic Animal Kingdom. As part of Design Technology they have been learning to design and evaluate animal hand puppets. They began by selecting their animal, designing it, making it with paper and then evaluating it. This week the children are so excited to be finally beginning their puppets using different materials.
The children have begun using skills such as cutting, joining and folding. They also worked in pairs to create the templates for the puppets.
We will be moving onto decorating the puppets soon.
Why not try writing some instructions on how to make a hand puppet at home and bring it in to share with everyone?
