This is one of the puppet dialogues performed by Year 5 students (9 year olds). They all had a lot of fun making these dialogues and although it was a crowd control marathon, it was worth it in terms of the satisfaction the students derived from seeing themselves perform. One little boy who was convinced he'd be no good at it stepped boldly up to the plate and delivered after a bit of extra encouragement and help. I was delighted.
