Learning through puppets

How an owl becomes wise

Infants classes at John Colet School had a wonderful incursion this week when puppeteer Jenny Ellis from Little Wing Puppet Productions visited the school. 

There was plenty of laughter during the production of The Owl’s Apprentice, which is an interactive solo show created by Jenny Ellis using a combination of shadow puppetry, hand puppetry and story-telling.

A cast of Australian animal puppets draw on the field of applied ethics and the 16 Habits of Mind developed by Professor Art Costa. The Owl’s Apprentice poses questions that certainly got the children thinking along with the laughter.

Great fun!
