Happy Holidays everyone!

Well what an AMAZING year we have had! We have really enjoyed learning about Brazil: The Rainforest, The Amazon River, Brazilian Landmarks and Brazilian Animals. We have developed our Expressive Arts skills and certainly become creative musical individuals this term, during our music lessons with Miss Atwell . 


So ……what better way to bring our year to a close than a Carnival procession and celebration of our own !


We entertained our parents and sold our drums and delicious Brazilian salsa that we made.Salsa making!
