Another exciting start to the week this week, with Europe day on Monday. The children used their research homework to complete ‘Europe Top Trumps’ and had a great time comparing different European countries’ rivers, populations, life expectancies… We also learned some traditional Portuguese dance moves, and had a chance to try our hand at impressionist painting in the style of Monet.
In capoeira this week we had our first roda, where the children sang some traditional capoeira songs, whilst two children played in the middle of the roda. If they would like to practise these songs at home, you can search for the on youtube as ‘ahora essa’ and ‘la lauê’.
We are also starting to look at persuasive texts, looking at where we might see them, and how they get us to change our minds.
