RIO DE JANEIRO CARNIVAL DAY - 8TH MARCH 2022

In Collective Worship, we have been exploring Christianity in Brazil. Linking with this theme we have been finding out how Christians in Brazil mark the start of Lent and comparing this with how Christians in our school begin Lent. On Tuesday 1st March 2022 we held our own special Carnival Day to help the children to understand what the Rio de Janeiro Carnival may be like. As part of this special day, which is a celebration that leads up to the start of Lent in Brazil, the children rotated around the school to complete the following exciting activities:

· Samba dancing using colourful ribbons

· Mask making

· Making fruit kebabs

· Samba drumming workshop provided by Norwich Samba

Towards the end of the day, we gathered in the hall so that each class could demonstrate their drumming skills to the other classes. We ended the day with our own mini parade, wearing the masks and using the whistles, at the back of the school.
