THERE was a carnival atmosphere at a school in Worcester as pupils got to experience the sights and sounds of the Caribbean.

Red Hill CE Primary School was awash with colour as it held a Caribbean-themed day to round off Year Three and Four pupil's project on the group of islands.

The children shared their knowledge with their parents through dancing, singing, reading poetry and a quiz.

During the project, teachers have been basing some of their literacy sessions around Caribbean stories and poems, while pupils also got to learn about fair trade.

They also made carnival parasols which featured in a special Caribbean parade.

Headteacher Spencer Morris said: "The children have been totally gripped by their topic this term."
