Term 1 Samba Percussion Workshop
As part of our South American Theme day we took part in a Samba percussion workshop. We learnt the Samba rhythms on a selection of instruments then practised a performance piece to demonstrate in assembly. It was good fun but very loud .
South America Collage
We worked in pairs to create a relief map of South America. Firstly, we used newspaper to make areas raised and then covered it in coloured tissue paper to show the height of the land in different areas. Next, we worked with our partner to solve cryptic clues which helped us identify the twelve flags of the South American countries. By using this information along with our previously learning in our Theme Books, we were able to draw the flags and locate the countries.
