At the frony are Shannon and Abbie dressed up as Brazilian ladies. Daniel and Thomas introduced them and looked very smart. I thought the dance was very active and they all looked very colourful. (Emily and Nick)

In Year 6, the children were dancing to the beat of Copacabana, with a few of the back row doing impressions of the football player Pele. Abbie and Shannon were in the front dressed in colourful clothes like the Brazilian female dancers. The others danced and sang along to try to make it like a Braziliand carnival. I thought the cresses were very nice and colourful and the songs were very good. It made me feel like dancing! (Jeff and Jordan)
