Year 5 Shadow Puppets
Last half term, Year 5 visited Wat Kanom in Ratchaburi Province. This temple is famous for it’s shadow puppets and is famous across Thailand for reviving the ancient skill of storytelling through shadow puppets. The students got to see some of the old puppets as well as watching a performance put on by the students of the Wat Kanom school. Following this the students all had a go at making their own cardboard shadow puppets.
Back in school the students re-wrote some traditional tales as playscripts to perform with the shadow puppets that they designed and made. I was lucky enough to go along and watch some of these performances. The children did a great job of bringing the stories to life with their puppets. You can see some of the children’s work on display in the stairwell between floors 5 & 6 in the KS2 building.
