Easton Royal Academy Pupils Learn About Brazil

BrazilProject04Well we certainly ended the term with a bang!  As part of our whole school project on Brazil, children made their own carnival masks and headwear and infants each made their own ganza.  Juniors wrote and performed poetry about the carnival and set their rhyming words to the syncopated rhythms of Brazil that they have been learning about in their music lessons.

BrazilProject06+7At ERA, we have been lucky enough to borrow a whole set of samba drums and we have been learning the traditional polyrhythmic beats of South America.  We have also learned the samba dance step and, along with our parents, we ended the term with our own carnival procession around the school.  I’m so proud of the samba band because they kept the rhythm and breaks going for the whole procession, even when marching – I have seen adults struggling with this!
