Dinnington Community Primary School


Autumn 2

Our theme this term is Sea Life. 

This term's theme is Sea Life. The term will start off with our annual Picture This competition, the theme is Landscapes. We have explored pointilism to produce our paintings. We were also exploring our colour mixing skills, looking at mixing primary colours to make secondary colours. We had to use different fingers to paint the dots on the picture, this created different sized dots. Some of us created a foggy forest scene, layering tracing paper to create the fog and painting different landscapes on each layer. 
The second week is Diwali. We have been very lucky to have a variety of guests in to help us learn more about Diwali. On Monday we watched a theatre group perform the story of Rama and Sita, then in the afternoon we were able to attend a drama workshop. During this we had the opportunity to develop our drama skills.
On Tuesday we will be making clay pots, and Wednesday is looking at traditional clothes. We are ending our week on Diwali with a festival of lights. 
Week three will start our Sea Life theme. In literacy we will be looking at stories. We will use Pie Corbetts story telling work to write our own story of Mr Benn. On Friday we will be having our WOW day at The Deep in Hull. This will help us prepare for our information text writing. We will end our theme with a pirate WOW day exit point. 
As well as all this, we will be practicing for our Christmas Play, Children of the World and making things for the Xmas Fayre! What a busy term!
