This week they met my “growing” puppets of different ages from my show Tic Teac Tic Teac and I talked to them about how my daughter had inspired it.
As they had seemed so absorbed by them last week we gave them more time on the passports. Again, first collecting and adding some new ideas for categories etc to the list on the whiteboard.
Again they were very happy to work on on these, but finally we gave them a ten minute warning and then set them a new challenge. We invited them to take part in a “Monster Party” where they were all to mingle and discover as much as they could about each others creations, and to make sure no one was left out or lonely.
So they dressed up and then fell on this task with gusto. After awhile we interrupted them to add another part of the challenge – they should find two other “monsters / heroes” who their monster can share a story with. When they had found their groups we gave each a large sheet of paper and asked them to put their and their character names onto it to continue from the next week.
