Shadow Puppet Day

What a fantastic day Year 1 had on Thursday 6th June. The whole year group was lucky enough to have Louise Godber from Inside Out Theatre come and share her expertise in puppet making. We learned about the different puppets we can make and learned how to make our own shadow puppets. We took inspiration from our Seaside theme and made a range of sea creatures. Our puppets had moving parts which we controlled with sticks. We worked on our puppets all morning, decorating them with cellophane, feathers and materials. Then in the afternoon we performed with our puppets to the rest of the year group to a range of different kinds of music. It was a fantastic experience. We will be focusing on reporting and recount writing this term and our puppet day definitely gave us lots to write about!!!!
