YEAR 1 -
SHADOW PUPPETS - FEBRUARY 2009 Catherine Grimaldi has
been working with Year 1 children on a shadow-puppet project. The
children created their own shadow-puppets and plays and wrote about the characters they made. They also watched a Lotte
Reiniger shadow-puppet film.
Many of Lotte Reiniger's films are viewable on Youtube
The Year 1 children also made animals for their "take home task"
over the half-term holiday.
These creatures are made from
old tights, pyjamas, gloves and socks!
Try making some hand-shadows.
