Creating Our Costumes

Our science topic this term, 'Under the Sea', 
led into a dance unit. 
The children, with Mrs Wistrand's help, have created a dance which will be presented at our Celebration of Learning.

For homework, the children and their families
have been planning and creating their costumes. 
First they drew the plans according to the success criteria:
- must be easy to put on with little help
- must have some attributes of the sea creature being portrayed
- must be mostly the chosen colour

The next step was to make the costumes.

The cellotape sculptures the children made in art, have been used for parts of some costumes.
These ...

became our octopus!

We look forward to sharing our dance with you later this week!

What undersea creature would you choose to be, and why?
