Our Arts Week this year ended today with a fantastic puppet show about 'The Selfish Giant'.
The children have been working towards this performance all week. We were very lucky to have puppeteer Kathy Kelly run workshops for us and helped us to make the puppets used during the show. Class 1 children made fish puppets using lots of sparkles and magic glitter, class 2 children made bird puppets using stuffed tights and ribbon, class 3 children made snake puppets - more stuffed tights and class 4 children made children puppets.
Other workshops were held every afternoon and were visited by a mix of children from each class. A scenery painting workshop involved splattering and printing paint onto large sheets. A puppet workshop involved creating the giant puppet using papier mache and lots of paint. We also made spoon puppets. Another workshop involved creating the music to use during the show during which all sorts of instruments and sound effects were utilised including splashing water and our own voices. The children were all involved in creating a large collage of the giant's garden. We also held a computer workshop where the children produced posters to display around the school advertising the puppet show. The children had a chance to develop their acting skills through drama and puppet workshops as well. It has been a very busy and creative week!
Thank you very much to Kathy Kelly for sharing her skills with us, to all the kind parents who offered their time to help during our workshops and to all the staff for making it such a successful week.
