On Wednesday 9th June Major Mustard the puppeteer visited Edgbaston High School and the Year 1 girls.
They enjoyed watching his puppet show in the morning and seeing all the different types of puppets that Major Mustard makes from recycled materials. He then demonstrated to the girls how to make their own puppet out of junk materials.
They returned to their classrooms where their creations began! We had lizards, red pandas, rabbits, cats, sheep and witches among just a few of the designs the girls came up with. The girls thoroughly enjoyed making their puppets and getting messy in the process!
In the afternoon, the girls completed their designs and then went to a puppet workshop where Major Mustard showed them how to bring their puppets to life through use of voices and actions. The girls thoroughly enjoyed their day. A huge thank you to Major Mustard and Mrs Mustard for visiting our school and giving the girls such an invaluable experience.
