Students and staff at a Suffolk primary school hosted a community carnival as the youngsters were treated to a "great send-off" before the summer break.
Bardwell Primary School, near Bury St Edmunds, welcomed villagers as pupils took part in sessions such as dance, signing and poetry last Friday.
After the performances had finished, the children worked in teams to run their enterprise fair - which doubled up as a fundraiser for the school’s parent-teacher association.
Michelle Boyd, acting deputy headteacher of the school and main organiser of the event, said: "We just had to celebrate our brilliant school and village by bringing some music, laughter and colour to the streets of Bardwell.
"We are delighted by how many people came along to make some noise and are really impressed by all the costumes, which were made by parents and carers.
