Puppet Magic


This term I am very excited to be working in partnership with Natasha Ogg our magnificent Performing Arts teacher on a major puppetry unit.

Students from Years 1-6 will be exploring puppetry from around the world. They will be designing and constructing their puppets during Visual Arts sessions and then using them to perform during Performing Arts sessions.

Seeing how the different aspects of the Arts overlap is always wonderful.

These are the different puppets we will be exploring:

Year 1 – Finger puppets

Yr 2 – Shadow puppets

Yr 3 – Marionette puppets

Yr 4 and 3/4K – Bunraku puppets

Yr 5 and 6 – Wayang Kulit puppets
