Pupils at a Chester school have been celebrating the Commonwealth and the World Cup in a focus week.
The youngsters at St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s and their teachers were allocated a country to research and find out about the culture, food, language, flag and religion.
The school was buzzing with new learning and children created posters, fact files, short films, learnt dances, songs, and even tasted different foods.
Headteacher Kathryn Oates said: “It really has been an amazing week where the children have learnt so much about different countries and their cultures.
“It has opened our children's eyes to different ways of life in an exciting and stimulating way.”
Alongside this, the students took part in a sports day where every child participated as a part of a team in the Commonwealth.
Luckily the sun was shining and the whole community of parents, grandparents and friends came and spent the day in school watching and cheering the children as they ran, skipped and even space-hopped their way to the finish line.
The children enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch with their families and the whole event brought everyone together in a relaxed atmosphere.
Ms Oates added: “What a happy day it has been!
“All children have shown great teamsmanship and worked together competing for their allocated countries with great spirit.
“It has been lovely having all the families celebrating the children’s achievements and we are very proud of them all.”
The afternoon concluded with the children singing to their families the Commonwealth Song Sing by Gary Barlow and everyone had a boogie to Happy by Pharrell Williams.
At the end of the week, sounds of the children and adults singing and dancing could be heard as they were treated to the sounds of a steel drum band from the Caribbean.
