Fluffy puppets enhance social skills

Kindergarten students are improving their social and emotional learning with the help of puppets, including a seal.

In five lessons, they will learn more about teamwork, leadership, building bridges between friends, overcoming obstacles and other skills particularly useful for students of their age.

The Drama Toolbox Wild Primary Adventure Series uses fun, fluffy and relatable Seal, who makes mistakes and learns from them with the help of soft puppet friends such as bears, crocodiles, turtles, dolphins and mice.

In their first lesson, this week, Seal learnt not to give up even when times were hard (a growth mindset), and Seal also learnt how to apologise for earlier inappropriate behaviour.

Older students at IGS will also be visited by the Drama Toolbox team, to learn further skills.
