Brilliant work from Bath Spa PGCE students. Developing ideas to extend the use of our puppets beyond the one day event in schools. In a three hour session they developed ways of working with the puppet to meet lesson objectives for their projects in Three Ways Special School about communication, friendship and why we would should be interested in people who dont look like us, think like us or behave like us.Thanks to Luke who shot this film on his smartphone -
