The vibrance, colour and energy of Rio was brought to life by pupils at Holbeach Primary Academy.

Children from Elm, Ash and Oak classes held a colourful carnival at the end of last term to conclude their topic on Rio de Vida.

Year 1-2 class teacher Natalie Palmer said: “All classes demonstrated samba dance routines they have learnt in PE whilst wearing headdresses designed by themselves.

“Each pupil made their own samba instrument to play as well. The afternoon was finished with a fabulous cake kindly donated by Willoughby foods.

“The carnival had a fantastic turn out of parents and carers.”

Rio de Janeiro in Brazil is world famous for its annual colourful carnival.

The destination was also the focus of the world during the 2016 Olympics and the Paralympics, and the last football world cup.

Samba plays a big part in the music of Rio and provides the thumping sound track and vibe to the carnival.

There is even a Samba parade with floats and dances performed by children and adults.
