Day and Night – Exploring shadows, light and poetry through puppetry
Best suited to KS2, Years 3 – 6
Start by watching a beautiful shadow puppet version of David Windle’s poem ‘Day and Night’. Then meet the filmmaker, who explains the shadow and light techniques she used to make the film and the puppets. Follow a video workshop showing you how to make your own translucent shadow puppets. We also include teacher notes with information and ideas for cross-curricular lessons linked to the themes, an author study and top tips for writing poetry.
Curriculum links: Art and Design/Design and Technology (puppet design and making), Science (light and shadows, Earth and Space), English (poetry), PSHE (raising aspirations)
Scoop’s Space Stories – Exploring the environment and recycling through puppetry
Best suited to KS1 and KS2, Years 1 – 6
Meet Scoop, who loves to find old things and give them new life, and Bertie who is made from plastic bottles and can’t wait to be recycled! Then head to Mr Gobble’s Garden, where Scoop introduces us to more friends made from objects that might otherwise be thrown away. Along the way we’ll also learn some lessons about growing plants and friendship.
There are videos showing you how to make and use puppets from junk, and activities on the environment and recycling.
Curriculum links: Art and Design/Design and Technology (puppet design and making), Science (everyday materials, plants, living things and their habitats), English (stories and character), PSHE (caring for the environment, friendship).
Tam’s Gift – A story about finding what makes us special – Using puppetry and music to explore emotions, relationships, self-confidence, feeling left out, friendships and aspirations.
Best suited to KS1 and lower KS2, Years 1 – 4
Tam is a little monster who doesn’t think they are special. All the other monsters seem to be good at something but Tam is struggling to find a talent of their own.
Follow along to a video teaching you how to make your own monster puppet. Then learn how to use your puppet to tell stories and explore feelings that might be hard to face in real life.
Puppetry is a great tool for exploring sensitive topics without having to refer to real people or situations. The monster puppets can express and explore thoughts, scenarios and feelings in a fun and safe way. This package also contains resources around Tam’s song including lyrics and recordings so you can sing along!
Curriculum links: Art and Design/Design and Technology (puppet design and making), English (stories and character), PSHE (emotional wellbeing and mental health, self-esteem, friendship), Music (singing and composition).
