Years 5 and 6 at Ochil Centre have been working in groups to create a shadow show. First of all, they learned about the history of shadow puppetry and looked at some examples of shadow shows. Then they decided on a theme for their performance, setting up characters and scenery/props. They then wrote a script and organised music and sound effects. The Year 3 and 4 pupils were invited along to watch. It was very successful and the end product was fantastic.
The groups and performances were as follows:
Tyra, Kieron, Sophia & Georgia – The Disappearing Turnip
Roxanne, Tiarn, Logan & Kentaro – Mr Men
Bjorn, Darci, Iona & Fergus – World War 2
Connie, Zahli, Layla & Kenzie – Brer Rabbit
Victoria, Windsor, Laila & Hans – The Snowman
Sapphire, Maisie, Kyle & Keelan – Humpty Dumpty
