Stanfield’s Road to Rio Carnival
Stanfield’s Road to Rio carnival took place on Friday 1st July 2016 as a way to celebrate the end of term and also the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio.
In the week leading up to the Carnival, the children found out interesting facts about the Olympics, researched the history of the Games and also located Brazil on the world map.
Each year group chose a country to represent in the Carnival and made a hat or headdress from that country. Reception children made their own crowns for team GB and Year 5 Laurel Wreaths for Greece. Year 2 made some fabulous matador hats for the Senors and the Senoritas wore fans in their hair. Year 1 children designed their own Statue of Liberty hats in red, white and blue to represent the USA. Year 4 girls had brightly coloured feathered headdresses for Mexico and Year 3 made traditional Australian cork hats.
On the day of the Carnival the weather was kind to us in the morning. The children had a variety of sporting activities outside. They had their faces painted, played parachute games and there were many craft activities happening thoughout the school.
A highlight of the day was the samba drumming workshop with Steve Rivers. The children experienced the different sounds of the drums and percussion instruments that would be heard in a traditional Rio Carnival. The children made a lot of noise!
All children had a dance workshop and learnt a dance to represent their chosen country. They only had 45 minutes to learn the dance but had lots of fun in the process.
Unfortunately it rained for our parade but it did not dampen our spirits. The children happily paraded down the playground, wearing their hats with big smiles on their faces. The parents greeted them with lots of cheers and clapping.
The year 4 girls opened our ceremony by performing a dance choreographed by Mrs Owen. Each year group in turn then performed their dance and sang a song.
Whilst we were all a little soggy by the end, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day and lovely to see the whole school perform together.
