[United Kingdom] Storytelling: Raja’s secret

This Lesson Starters episode offers a couple of minutes of a traditional Punjabi story, performed with shadow puppets for KS1 English pupils.

Shadow puppets. Punjabi story.

The story sets up the basic plot, introduces the main characters and leaves the audience at a point where they have to guess what happens next.

High attaining pupils will be able to write their version of the rest of the story whilst others should be able to describe the story as far as it is performed.
