This term Barra class are having lots of fun learning all about Brazilian culture!
The boys and girls have so far tried out Samba dancing; cooked and eaten traditional Brazilian dishes; set up a Samba band (working hard on all the rhythyms!); made ‘Ganza’ (Brazilian shakers); created a giant flag and explored animals of the Amazon rainforest.
Later this month we will have educational visits from a Brazilian volunteer who will be teaching the children about her life growing up in Brazil as well as some basic portugeuse. She will also be making jewellery with the children.
Mrs Shipway’s daughter is also going to visit Barra class to share her experiences with the pupils after returning from 3 months in Brazil.
