L.O. To respond to a piece of music

Follow the Link to BBC Ten PIeces and listen to the most recent installement to listen to Mason Bates’ A Bao A Qu from his Anthology of Fantastic Zoology! (see the picture below). 

The 2nd video is about writing a story in response to the music. You could choose to write the story or just describe a creature. Maybe it will inspire you to make a new shadow puppet in the shape of your creature ready for your puppet theatre!

Use the padlet below to tell me what you think about the music! What does it make you think about?

L.O. To make a shadow puppet theatre

Last week, you made a shadow puppet using split pins, so now we need somewhere to show them off! Below, you'll find a few ideas of how to make a shadow puppet theatre. If you don't have the right materials, I'm sure that you can get some ideas and make something similar. Maybe you could make a video and share it with me. If you email me I will upload them onto the website for everybody to see.
