Class 2 - All Around The World

29 Nov 2019


We have had a very busy and exciting week in school!  We have been practising our acting and singing ready for our performance of Aladdin, as well as preparing the song  ‘Fifteen days to Santa’ for Stray FM radio, which was recorded on Thursday morning.

We had a brilliant time learning about different cultures from all around the world.  Our visitors have shared their skills and knowledge about dance, music, food and art from many different cultures. We learnt how people from different cultures live together in our multicultural society in Britain.  Please see our enrichment page for more details about the week.  
Here are some pictures of our class joining in with the activities.   We have begun to write diaries about what we did each day and we will focus on these in our writing next week.

African Dancing

 
 
 
 



 
Aboriginal Art
We found that the pictures were made using dots that were painted using fingers or sticks.  The patterns have meanings – often they were symbols or signs to show people where to go to find things:
Circles indicated a meeting place or water hole.  The straight lines showed a pathway to the meeting place.  These designs are now often found on boomerangs, masks and musical instruments.   

 
 
 
 
Indian Culture
On Wednesday, a lady called Yazzi came to share some Indian food, music, clothing and Rangoli designs
  

 
 

 

 
Brazil and Samba Drumming
On Thursday morning we looked at some pictures showing what life is like in Brazil.   We learnt that there are some amazing carnivals that looked very exciting.  We also enjoyed sharing some Brazilian chocolate sweets that Ezra’s mummy made for us.
We then found out about Brazilian Samba music.  We found out that it is very lively and loud; we couldn’t resist dancing to it!  We really enjoyed playing the instruments and learnt lots of musical skills.
