Laoshe Teahouse

22 March 2017

This week, the children of Year 3 Parrots, Toucans and Puffins were lucky enough to go on not one, but two trips! In addition to our incredible residential to Tianjin, the children also had time on Monday to visit Laoshe Teahouse to watch Shadow Puppet performances.

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!
