Although the mornings and evenings are dark, it has been a very colourful and creative start to the term in Class 2 as we have started to learn about Brazil. We have found out where in the world Brazil is and we have discovered a lot about the landmarks of the country.
We have been particularly captivated by the Amazon rainforest and all the amazing animals and wildlife that can be found there. A rainforest has grown in the classroom and we have been busy creating animal pictures such as howler monkeys and macaws to add to it.
Perhaps our favourite activity so far has been to design and make animal masks in preparation for our classroom carnival. They are wonderfully vibrant and we have used gems, feathers and lots of colour to make them carnival ready!
