As part of their topic, Light, the children have been learning about translucent, trasparent and opaque materials and how they affect shadows. They got to see all this science at work when they viewed three traditional tales all reenacted with the use of shadow puppets. Not only this, but the tales were accompanied by traditional Chinese music. A feast for the eyes and the ears!
After each performance, the puppeteers were kind enough to give the children the chance to head behind the scenes and give it a go themself. You can tell by the look on their faces here quite how much they enjoyed this unique opportunity! A great morning had by all!
