Before enjoying the amazing “Japan Focus” incursion this Friday, students have been busily making their very own shadow puppets. They have followed the procedure of stenciling, cutting out and attaching a stick to make their puppets. In pairs and small groups they have been discussing how their puppet would move and sound on stage. Everyone has had a go at performing for their classmates, by holding their shadow puppet between the stage screen and the light source.
What a magical mixture of writing, science and performing arts!
