Pupils from King’s Ely Acremont got in the carnival spirit as they looked ahead to this years Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Youngsters from the school took part in a ‘Road to Rio’ workshop, with each year group representing their chosen nations – Greece, Spain, USA, Australia and Spain.
The workshop started with an opening ceremony where the pupils paraded their nation’s flag and gave their peers a fact file about their chosen country.
They also spent time learning about their county’s traditions and got involved with some Olympics-based games with the school’s PE staff.
Assistant Head of King’s Ely Acremont and organiser, Sarah Stevens, said: “The children had an amazing time learning about the history of the Olympic Games as well as finding out facts about some of the countries taking part.
“They thoroughly enjoyed learning specially choreographed dance moves from their chosen country and performing them to the whole school at the end of the day.”
