So great to see so many of you at the Rio express. We loved making and eating the empanadas.
Check out these Maths websites...the children have enjoyed playing these games this week...Hope they enjoy the problem solving square we have sent home :)
Look at all the fantastic things we have made!!
We love Capoeira - this is a traditional Brazilian martial art/dance. It is helping us to be more like our School's Super Learners and we think about Every Child's Rights. Today was all about the Right to be Safe and the Right to be Heard.
We got creative
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.
This week we have been using scales to compare the weight of different items. Maybe you could develop their knowledge by helping your child to weigh different items on the bathroom or kitchen scales or let them try out the scales next time you take them to the supermarket.
Copacabana beach in our small world!
This week you have been asked to re-create a famous Brazilian landmark. I'm really excited to see what you do. Be as creative as you like!
Rio de Vida
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.
