Puppet show for Primary students
Treloar School hosts regular Students’ Voice Conferences which are used by students as a platform to discuss matters that concern their school life. During the last conference, the majority of students requested more puppet shows.
To keep the themes of the shows closely linked to the current curriculum theme, “Planting a rainbow”, Primary teachers got in touch with a company called In a bubble that offers puppet shows that could be designed based on a chosen topic.
Having been informed about the current topic for Primary students, the company arrived at Treloar’s with a show which incorporated “Planting a rainbow” accents throughout their show. It was very entertaining, allowing the students to also consolidate things they have been learning in class this term, like colours, sentence ordering and using objects of reference to make a point and prompt students to communicate their ideas and preferences.
My dream just came true. That was definitely not a dream, it is once in a lifetime experience. Thank you.
Overall, the students loved the puppet show: they were able to join along at times where they had to. After the play, the students had half an hour to meet the puppets and interact with them and the actors. It was a brilliant show and we have more amazing activities coming up soon.
That’s also one of the many things we’re proud of at Treloar’s: we are promoting our students’ voice, so they can learn about the value of sharing their views, ensuring that the students have unlimited opportunities to participate in the development of both their own and their peers provision, which prepares them for life beyond Treloar’s.
