As part of our Minibeasts topic we had The Very Hungry Caterpillar Theatre show to visit the nursery.
Storytelling and puppetry are magical for children. There is a tangible focus of attention when a puppet appears. The children are in a unique phase of life where they can enter the realm of imagination with ease.
Puppets allow imaginative and logical thought to exist simultaneously and this has enormous benefits on children’s creative development. The interaction between the puppeteers and the children also supports development of language, listening and communication skills.
Thank you to the amazing puppeteers who really brought the story to life and gave the children a magical morning which they will remember for a very long time.
