The colour and spectacle of Rio carnival was conjured up at a Hitchin school for pupils who also learned about life north of the border as part of a World Celebration Day.
The Year 2 youngsters at Highbury Infant School on Standhill Road shone a spotlight on both Brazil and Scotland, first learning about samba and frevo dance styles, tucking into local delicacies and having a go at capoeria martial arts moves.
Headteacher Helen Avery said: “The capoeria workshop was something the children particularly enjoyed.
“It certainly tested out their co-ordination. One of the parents also came in to talk to the children about Brazil and share some Brazilian food.
“The day was a great example of bringing learning to life.”
