We looked at the United Kingdom first and then looked at where Brazil was. We talked about it being in South America and located this on Google Earth and the globe.
The children went on a safari through the Amazon rain forest and we learnt about the animals that they might see.
We learnt about favelas in Rio and the children built their own favelas out of recyclable materials, knex, lego and duplo.
We look at the famous Rio landmark 'Christ the Redeemer' and we made a model from clay.
We had two specialist teachers in and the children had a capoeira lesson and learn a Brazilian dance.
We also made Brazilian headdresses to wear at the Brazilian carnival.
