Year 4 have been exploring festivals of the world. We kick started our topic with the Rio Carnival, looking at how the festival brings in so much money for Brazil. We created our own masks and watched a film clip about a young girl who made her living from creating the carnival costumes.
Next, we moved onto looking at the Irish festival of St Patrick’s day and the traditions behind the celebrations. We looked at the story of St Patrick, created shamrocks and wrote information texts – The truth behind the shamrock.
We still have more festivals to explore and we shall update our blog (with examples of our work) as we study them.
