PUPILS at Glenfrome Primary School celebrated the beginning of the 2018 World Cup in international style.

The school hosted a World Cup Day on June 14 to coincide with the competition's launch in Russia.

Each of the 14 classes chose one of the 32 qualifying countries to learn about. This was then celebrated in an assembly where the classes shared examples of their work, which included hakas from Iceland, sombrero games from Mexico, a Brazilian carnival, Japanese sushi making and Moroccan food tasting.

Year 5 teacher Carrie Derrick said: "The children and teachers all had a really fun day as well as learning lots about a different culture."
