Java Performance

8th February 2017
On Wednesday 8th February Year 1 treated their parents to a show of Javanese music and puppets as a culmination of the work they have been doing with our Creative Partner Aris Daryono, a musician from the Indonesian island of Java.
This is the 7th year that Aris has come in to work with the Year 1 children and it is always a highlight of their year. The children worked with him to write a traditional Javanese tale, make shadow puppets to perform the show and learn to play the Gamelan instruments to accompany the story.
