The mystery of Mystrey Mist

On Monday, Kingfisher class had a visit from the West Runton Puppet School.  This was an all day event that we all really enjoyed and gained much from.

The day revolved around a story, The Mystery of Mystery Mist, which told the tale of a boy, who's a ghost, and a boat.  It included a lot of Norfolk coastal history and geography and had been planned to be a key part of our 'Coasts' project.  We learned about the lost village of Shipden, the ghostly singing Yow-Yows, Black Shuck, how the tides work and about the fishing industry in North Norfolk.

Karen, from the puppet shop was the author of the story. This was now, with our help, being made into a film.  The characters in the film were played by puppets, which we were operating.  A selected group worked on the voice over's for parts of the film and we also had time to create our own puppet shows, which Mr Coles filmed!

It was a fantastic day.  We all took home a copy of the book which has for many of us, become our current individual reading book.

Karen and her team were really kind and patient with us.  We hope they enjoyed working with us as much as we did, working with them.

Here are some pictures from the day.
