Aphrodite, Poseidon, Ares and Zeus, along with a loveable Minotaur, came to life in puppet form at St Benedict's this week, bringing mythological mayhem to the Junior School.
Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a feast of Greek mythology on Friday June 21st, with a very entertaining Greek Myths performance. A musical puppet show, full of quirky humour and surprises, introduced all the Greek gods and their various powers. To everyone’s delight, this was followed by a puppetry workshop, giving the children the chance to put on their own show.
Very lively. A brilliant day of education. I learnt so much."Nick
Everything was very professional and well planned. Craig put a lot of effort into the show, with a lot of humour. He showed us how to bring something to life and how to work a puppet and I learned a lot from the show. I really enjoyed it."Susannah
This performance was amazing. I loved it when he let us play with the puppets. He told myths that we knew and didn't know. We had a great time."Helina
I really enjoyed the day because it was very funny and it brought the puppets to life. In the workshop he told us how to use puppets and how they worked. He also gave us some puppets to put on a mini play of our own."Konstantinos
'When Craig brought the puppets to life he made them act really funny and the show itself was amazing.'
'On Friday Craig came in to do a puppet show. He taught us about Greek myths and showed us different techniques to use such as magnets for the Minotaur's maze. He then taught us how to use a puppet with skill.' Dyran
'I thought the magnets were very cool and magical because it was weird how he controlled them at the same time. It was amazing!' Louis
'My favourite part was when he was running away from the Minotaur.' Jerry
