Rackheath Primary School

Inspiring Learning, Valuing All

Rio Carnival comes to Rackheath Primary!

This week (Tuesday 22nd March) year 5 had a little taste of the Rio Carnival as they took part in their own South American Carnival day to finish their geography unit!

All of the children dressed up in bright and loud ‘carnival’ clothes to get in the mood for it…with some children, Finley Betts in particular, going all out with their outfits!

Activities the children took part in:

– Rio Carnival mask making,

– Samba dancing

– Samba music

– South American rainforest art

– South American food tasting (Locra – Butternut squash and Chorizo Stew)

A great day was had by all!! A massive thank you goes out to all involved that helped to make the day a HUGE success!

Here are a few photographs to show how much of a success was:
