A VILLAGE school fought off the rainy gloom when it hosted the vibrant sights, sounds and flavours of the Caribbean.
Beyton Middle became immersed in the subject for a day with tropical themed activities spanning the educational spectrum.
The school welcomed Pantasy Steel Band, who performed and taught pupils how to play steel drums.
Lessons were given a Caribbean twist with colourful head dresses produced in art, the Rastafarian religious movement covered in philosophy and immigration and emmigration studied in history.
A parent from St Vincent spoke to classes about her experience moving to the United Kingdom.
Pupils also got to try Caribbean food and those in Year 5 penned poems for a closing assembly.
Frank Anstee-Parry, head of ethics and philosophy, said: “The feedback we’ve received so far has been absolutely fantastic. It’s such a vibrant place that you can’t contain it to one area of the curriculum.”
