Festival Time! Samba!

Posted in General News | No Comments »

On Thursday, the Year One and Year Two children took part in our amazing Brazilian Carnival! We had lots of  fun with our brightly coloured masks, funky samba dancing and playing our musical instruments. Here are some photographs of our carnival:


We practised our samba movements and did a dance together! IMG_4132

Great dancing Bella!


Mr Martin came to teach us all a samba rhythm using the ago-go bells and a whistle. We then played the rhythm with our own instruments. We had so much fun!

Which part of the carnival did you like best?

Videos will come soon…

Making Instruments…It’s nearly carnival time!

We have been exploring, designing and making instruments in Design and Technology.

We really enjoyed designing our instruments! Some of us have made shakers, drums, guitars and much more! We have used masking tape and PVA glue to construct our instruments and then decorated them ready for the Brazilian carnival with bright colours, feathers and sequins! We are very excited!
