So great to see so many of you at the Rio express. We loved making and eating the empanadas.
This week we are making musical shakers like the ones they might use in the samba schools in the carnival parade. We are decorating them to make them look exciting and we are choosing what to put inside to make the shakers sound different to each other.
Come and join the party down in Rio. This half term we're going to be finding out all about the immense and awesome carnival in Brazil: Rio de Vida!
What facts do you know about Brazil? Can you find a book at the library or look on the internet? I'd love you to bring in some information to share with the class.
It's Carnival! http://off2brazil.com takes you to "the greatest show on Earth" at the Sambadrome of Rio de Janeiro to watch the Samba parade. The best Samba schools in Rio are showing creativity through amazing carts, costumes and choreography.
