  • I would use this to engage students in retelling the story. Perfect!

  • To use in class to support re-telling a traditional tale. Yes I agree, a turnip stick would be a useful addition. Thank you.

  • I would use this for "le navet enorme"unit from Lightbulb languages.Made masks but presenting it as a puppet show would also work well.

  • retelling stories in EYFS

    , Oct 4th
  • To help with telling the story and for the children to be able to use these puppets to act out themselves. This is all part of our growing theme.

    , Mar 2nd
  • Continuos provision for the children to act out the story - using plastic tray

    , Jan 26th
  • Continuous provision resource. The puppet theatre will be embellished with some props (knitted turnip, cat and dog puppet, brown scarf for soil etc), and placed near the creative zone so that children might make and then use their puppets to retell the story.

    , Jan 23rd
A set of small images for you to cut out and use as stick puppets to bring this traditional tale to life!
This resource is available in Standard and Black and White.
