Today we have been learning all about Brazil!
We talked about the country, it's animals and the weather there (with a lot of help from James!) and we watched some videos of the big carnival in Rio de Janeiro. There were lots of Brazil themed activities; some tried to build their own statue of Christ the Redeemer out of different construction toys, others explored the streets of Rio and São Paulo on google earth and the rest of us made shakers and masks for our very own carnival. We had the carnival in the afternoon; parading around school. After the parade, we came back to class for some delicious Brazillian food; fajitas, pao de queijo (cheese bread), mango and papaya. The day finished with a bit of a dance to some Brazilian samba music... and a very tired Mr Hughes!
