Welcome to Class One and Class Two!

Curriculum Projects

Our Curriculum Project for Summer 1 2021 is Rio de Vida!

Rio de Vida!

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to party in Rio!

This half term, we’ll dress up in bright clothes, hang out the bunting and enjoy a carnival party! Afterwards, we’ll write about our carnival experiences, compose carnival poetry, create vibrant dances and play carnival rhythms. We’ll learn to speak some Portuguese (the official language of Brazil), study maps and globes to locate Brazil and decide what it would be like to live there. As we learn more about Brazil, we’ll explore famous legends, follow recipes to make Brazilian carnival treats and scour non-fiction books for fascinating facts. Reflecting on what we have learnt about Brazilian culture, we’ll think about celebrations in different parts of the world and decide why people celebrate. We’ll also create colourful collages, cards and carnival bunting. At the end of our project, we’ll have a celebration day to learn and experience some of the foods that originate from Brazil.
