PUPPETS, songs and jokes were the order of the day for primary school pupils.

Children at Norristhorpe Junior and Infant School enjoyed a visit from Colonel Custard, who brought along his puppets to put on a show with a difference.

For the colonel first talks through his show with his audiences to explain to them how puppetry works.

The colonel, also known as Roy Atkinson, said: “I tell them about everything to do with the show, which is quite unusual.

“I make everything myself so I tell them how I made all the props and how they all work.

“I demonstrate to the children all the workings of what I have to do to put the show together.

“I also pick children out of the audience and they come up and have a go at working the puppets. They can win prizes too.”

Assistant headteacher Caroline Hoyle said the show was part of a project pupils were doing about the seaside.

“They had a great time,” she added.
