In Year 1 we were really lucky to have a local artist Louise come to visit and share with us how to make shadow puppets. First she showed us all of the diferent kinds of puppets she has and then showed us how to a sea themed shadow puppet. We worked really hard to designa nd create our shadow puppets in the classroom. It was so much fun but tricky to make it have a moving part! This took lots of stickability and not giving up!
We got into small groups and made up a short story to perform using our puppets. This group worked particularly well together as a group to listen and co-operate. Well done Marc, Harriet, Zac, Noah and Tyler W! :-)
We each had a go at performing behind the screen with our shadow puppets! We learnt how to make the shadow bigger and smaller.
