In this final half term Year 3G1 will be studying the country of Bolivia. All of the work that we do will go towards creating a float for a carnival day with the rest of the school. Children will be making lots of things for this day and will be researching about the traditions and cultures of the country.
Some of the questions that we will be looking at will be:
What is it like to work in the Potosi silver mines.
How do people live on Lake Titicaca?
What would it feel like to travel down Yungas road?
Why would we destroy something as beautiful as Salar de Uyuni?
What festivals do Bolivians celebrate and do they have any traditional dance?
Can you help your child to find/make a costume for the Carnival day? You can research traditional Bolivian costume or can dress in carnival clothing…there are 5 weeks to get going!
