Today we held our Brazilian carnival to kick-start our topic. We dressed up in our bright coloured t-shirts and wore our sparkly headdresses. We listened to carnival music and watched a clip of a Brazilian carnival. We also learnt some Samba steps and moved in time to the music. We made our own short movie clip using the green screen - check out the videos below!

Team Dolphins made colourful headdresses for our samba parade. They decorated their headdresses with sequins and feathers.

Mr Dan held some fun and exciting skipping rope workshops!

Have a lovely Christmas!

Every performance just got better! The children worked so hard and enjoyed every minute. We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Shelley for writing the script.

We have been working really hard in the classroom and later in the hall to star in our Christmas play, Rudolph the Musical!

Team Dolphin made their own Rudolph decorations for our class Christmas tree. They will be taking them home to put them on their Christmas tree!

For Children in Need, we brought in our teddy bear and read a story to our teddy bear. Also, we had a range of different activities that we did during the day.

Today we brought in our favourite toys and discussed what they were made from and how they work. We found that most of them had plastic somewhere. Some had fluffy material and a lot of them had electrical parts to make them move, talk or light up.

It's smiley Friday!
