Pupils from Marpool Primary School enjoyed a samba festival.


Youngsters at an Exmouth primary school have enjoyed a musical celebration, with help from pupils from another school in the town.

Children from Marpool Primary School’s nursery unit, having spent a half-term learning about festivals, finished off by holding their own samba festival.

Children and parents made headdresses, bangles, necklaces, samba instruments and smoothies.

The event finished with a performance by the Beacon Beats samba band, made up of pupils from The Beacon C of E Primary School.

Marpool foundation stage unit teacher Helen Hunt said that the nursery pupils would like to ‘say a big thank you’ to the Beacon pupils for their visit.
