As part of our cooperation project with Le Ferradou school (our French partner) we will be working on performing a play together. It will be in French but the story is very international because the main character explores 5 different continents. Even though our performance is a long way off we are already preparing. Our first job was to find out about African masks. We learnt that they are traditionally worn for celebrations. Sometimes they are worn when performing dances. We looked at lots of examples before designing our own. Most African masks are made by carving wood but we will be using cardboard to make our masks. It is easier to cut and the masks will be lighter to wear!
