Mulbarton youngsters take trip to Olympic countries
A village school was turned into an airport as youngsters headed off to Olympic countries.
As part of Mulbarton Infant School's countries week, pupils are this week learning about Australia, Brazil, Spain, China and South Africa.
The event kicked off yesterday when the children 'travelled' to the different countries.
They checked in, went through security and passport control and were taken on a flight by their headteacher Stuart Beard who was dressed as a pilot.
Once at their destination, they learnt about the country and its culture. They also got the chance to make Spanish castanets, Australian boomerangs and a Chinese dragon.
The week-long event is part of the school's Olympic project which has already seen youngsters take a trip to the Olympic Park in London and play sports at the Sportspark at the University of East Anglia.
Mr Beard said: 'The children have been really excited. They've come dressed as tourists and have brought sunglasses, a cuddly toy and their suitcases.
