Pupils from year two at Uphill Primary School have been learning about the continent of Africa by studying where it is, what life and schools are like and what animals are native to the different countries.

They also made African pots and necklaces, tie-dyed T-shirts and tasted food from the different countries.

Children enjoyed taking part in some music lessons to try out African drums and learned some new songs.

The lucky pupils were treated to a visit to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Wraxall to learn about the animals from African countries who live at the attraction. Parents and carers were then invited into the school to see all the work the children have completed in an exhibition.

They also watched singing, drumming and dancing performances.
