Nearly 200 children at Wheatfields Primary School, in St Ives, performed a medley of music from around the world.

The school has taken part in the Government's wider opportunities music initiative, which aims to provide every primary school child with the chance to learn a musical instrument.

At Wheatfields, Year Five children have learned the djembe, an African drum, while Year Three pupils have been learning the ocarina pipes.

They gave a display of their skills during a concert to parents.
