We had some chocolate on Brazil day. We smelled it, looked at it and tasted it to guess if it was Fairtrade.
We made a poppy out of clay. When it was dry, we painted it pink.
We made pictures with coloured paper, glue and salt for snow.
We weaved using string and straws.
I enjoyed the two days.
I went and l had a Journey around South America. We made a clay rose and looked a video about a lost city in Peru called Machu Picchu. We have also made paper mountains with salt and pva glue. It was really the day. 🇬🇧🇧🇷👨👩👦👦♥️
- First, take two straws
2. Then, get some tape and put it on the straws
3. Wrap the string around the straws
4.Keep going until you have finished.
1.You will need to get some straws.
2.Get some tape and make a plus with your straws.

To make a mini floating island you will need:
-a bucket of water
First you need to make a little tub looking thing out of cardboard.
Next, you will need to fill it with hay.
After, you will need to make a house on it from cardboard.
Finally, put it in the water and see if it floats.
1.We made islands that are on Lake Titicaca. If you do not know what they are, they are straw houses on a island. The straw floats on water. We made our own from straw, tin foil and cardboard stuck together.
2.We did Inca dancing and showed each other our own moves to the music. I liked Jayden A, Jaden B and Keir’s dance the best and it was really fun.
3.We also did weaving. We used 2 straws and some string and wrapped it around the straws.
At Norbridge, we had a day based on South America. Here’s some facts (about South America):
- We did some Inca dancing and it was funny.
- We also made our very own islands from foil and straw.
- Also we looked at Machu Picchu.
- We all did a mountain collage.
My favourite part was making at islands because I like challenges and I had fun building them.
But in the afternoon we also made some mountain collages. It was a lot of fun.
My second favourite thing was learning about Machu Picchu because I’m interested in adventures and it was a lost city. I like old stories about kings who ruled cities. The thing that was the hardest was the floating island. We had to make a house from tin foil and it needed to float on water and look like the real floating islands.
My favourite thing was the Inca dancing. Me and my friends made up a dance and we made the whole class laugh. My second favourite thing was weaving. It was fun because you got to use a lot of different colours and sting.
We had an awesome day at Norbridge Academy. We learnt all about South America. We did clay roses, weaving, islands on lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu, Inca dancing and mountain collages.
Jagoda liked when we did the clay roses because they are most important flower in Ecuador. Julia liked when we did the mountain collage pictures because we used salt.
Together we liked doing inca dancing.
We had a very good day, everyone enjoyed everything😎
