Inspiring Learning, Valuing All

South American Day…

The Rio Carnival took place in Rackheath this week as the Year 5s had a very exciting South American Day to finish their Geography unit. Before the day had even started, the children of Year 5 arrived in some amazingly bright and colourful outfits! Throughout the morning the children participated in artwork linked to the Amazon Rain forest and designed and created their own masks. Some groups of children also got a chance to cook a delicious meal for everyone. At lunchtime nearly all of the children tried the ‘Locra’ which was a butternut squash and chorizo stew with honey bread. To finish off the day, the children created their own South America inspired music as well as a dance too! Lots of fun was had by all!
