Shadows and Stories in Year 3
This week, Year 3 have been creating and performing Indian shadow puppet shows to perform to our Early Years children.
The children researched classic stories and reinvented them to have typically Indian names, settings and characters.
Each child pitched their idea to the class. We voted for six of our favourite stories and made up six groups to produce each story as a shadow puppet performance.
Children demonstrated fabulous design and cutting skills creating their puppets. This is a tricky task as they had to design their characters to be effective only as a detailed silhouette.
We transformed the classroom into a theatre and each group did a wonderful job presenting their story. Great job Year 3, well done.
