Our Carnival Backpack designs have now been brought to life in amazing technicolour. The Water Cycle theme has guided children in their colour selections and there will be some amazing creations on show at the Carnival Parade. It has not all been smooth sailing as there have been problems to solve along the way, however we have worked both collaboratively and independently to try to work through these – requesting further help when required. We have also put our sewing skills back into action to decorate our water-cycle-themed Carnival Banner. The children quickly picked up dance moves and drumming skills taught to them in Caribbean workshops and there has been much jiggling, tapping and shimmying as we prepare our dance and music for the carnival show. All in all we have had a colourful couple of weeks in Year 5. It will be a shame when it is all over.
