National Children's Carnival Week 2021


July 2021 saw a colourful and joyful celebration all across the UK for the first National Children's Carnival Week.

Explore just some of the activities and events of participating carnival groups and schools.

Some worked on carnival projects for weeks leading up to the celebration week, some held their carnivals and celebrations that week, some launched their carnival programmes which will continue through the summer holidays and into the Autumn term 2021.


The aim of the initiative was to bring joy and creativity back to learning after such a challenging year for students and teachers, here are the thoughts of Richerd Jenkins, Headteacher of The Meads Primary School in Luton.
