Sewing the seeds of success!
Puppet making in Year 5 will be a big feature of our learning over the next couple of weeks! To get us going on this task, we first of all honed our stitching skills and learnt how to complete a running stitch, back stitch and whip stitch - it was more challenging than most of us thought it would be. Then we moved on to creating our puppet's head, including beads for eyes and wool for hair. Our final puppets will all represent a character from our core text Macbeth, so look out for loads of mini Macbeths, Lady Macbeths, Banquos, Malcolms and some witches soon.
