Year 5 Brazil Carnival Day 2017

Yesterday the children in Year 5 took part in a Brazil day and found out all about Brazilian carnivals. They made a flag and a mask and then tried some different fruits in the afternoon. They all made their own tropical punch from orange, pineapple and apple juice.

The sun came out too just like in Brazil 🙂

 

Here are some photos of our day.

 

What did you learn about carnivals Year 5?

Year 5 Cartwright Hall and Lister Park

Today Year 5 went on a trip to Cartwright Hall and Lister Park, in Bradford. In the morning we had a workshop where we learnt about noticing things around us, sketching and printing. The children looked at the exhibitions and sketched different parts of artwork of their choice.  Their artwork was super and they tried so hard to create original prints.

After, we had a picnic outside in the sunshine. We then went for a walk around the lake and a play in the park.

Well done Year 5, you were very good at art and extremely well behaved and polite.

Well done!
