Shadow Puppets

Published

In art this term Year 6 have been combining their creative talents with what they have learned in science about light and shadow. The result has been some fantastic shadow puppets.

Pupils drew initial designs on paper, before cutting them out of black card and adding details through intricate cutting and coloured acetate. The different sections of the puppets were then connected together with paper fasteners to create moving parts. 

Pupils then used the light box theatre to show their creations, adding voices and short stories to dramatise their puppets - often to very comic effect!
