Young explorers at a primary school in Portishead have travelled Around The World in 80 Days.

Children at Trinity Primary School in Marjoram Way learned all about a number of countries, inspired by the Jules Verne novel, including Spain, France, Africa and Canada. The pupils got to dress up in traditional clothing from each of the countries and found out about a variety of aspects of their culture, including food, language and music.

They also enjoyed some art and craft activities based on the countries including making their own replica flags.
