Make Some Magic!
Our topic this term is called Make Some Magic. The children received a letter form Jiminy Cricket who told the children how he was fed up with looking after Pinocchio and his naughty ways! The children have been set a challenge to create a new puppet for Jiminy that does the right thing!
Meanwhile, children will be learning about puppets over time and the different types of puppets available.
They will have fun investigating different materials around us in Science lessons and learning about a range of craft makers and artists over time. Their knowledge will help influence their puppet making and designing.
Pinocchio will be causing problems throughout the term which will require the children to follow and create maps, investigate weather patterns and go on a walk of our local area. They will also be identifying the UK on a map and learning about capital cities, beaches and changes in the environment.
After the children have had lots of fun during this topic, they will be performing their own puppet shows to Reception and hopefully create a puppet for Jiminy Cricket that will not cause as many problems as Pinocchio!
