Memorable Experience – SAMBA – using Brazilian percussion instruments

Today we had a visit from ‘Hugh’ and we got to play some Brazilian instruments to the well-known rhythm ‘Clave’. We found out that samba is mainly played with percussion instruments. We got to experiment playing the instruments but we also learnt the names of the instruments.

A visit from ‘Exotic Zoo’

We are learning all about animals in science with a focus on ‘reptiles’ as part of our new topic Dinosaur Planet. Today we had a visit from the exotic zoo and we met a 3 banded armadillo, a barn owl, a red eyed tree frog, a bearded dragon lizard and two meerkats. We learnt the names of different types of animals. The only types of animal we didn’t meet today was a fish and an insect! We met mammals, amphibians, reptiles and a bird.
