    Hi Kate
    We have been working on character studies, plot summaries, quotations that tell us things about characters to inform our mask designs.

    We have also started to make fans with the same quotes and we will use them again probably on the decorative slippers…

    Megan has made a kaleidoscope and we have looked out a couple of quotes that describe the court and the forest.

    See you later!
