Chemical Puppets



Alex Gibbons, from Thomas Tallis School in south east London, teaches science by inventing creative activites for a Year 9 class who find the subject challenging.

Alex presents a video showing how a puppet making activity and a puppet show have transformed the process of learning the reactivity series at her school.

After watching the video, Alex discusses the techniques with consultant Adrienne Jones, arts college manager Jon Nicholls and deputy SENCO Jenny Armstrong.

They explore the benefits of this creative approach on pupils' learning and retention, the impact on interpersonal skills and the possibilities of new methods of delivery using technology.
