School Reporters from Comberton Village College visit Brazil for the Street Child World Cup tournament.
Brazil here we come! Comberton Village College students get ready for their big adventure - visiting the Street Child World Cup tournament in Rio de Janeiro.
The Comberton students began their journey to South America with a flight from Heathrow Airport.
And we're there! Cloudy conditions and temperatures of 23C greeted the students when they landed in Rio.
Rio is a huge city with many of its poorer communities living in the favela shanty towns.
You are never far from a football pitch in Brazil - even on the beach.
Sugarloaf Mountain is one of Rio's most iconic sights.
A cable car is the least taxing way to get to the top of the mountain.
And the view from the top is well worth the trip - even if it is cloudy.
Strictly Come School Report - Rio's spectacular Municipal Theatre is home to some impressive artwork.
How's that for a staircase? The theatre also boasts lavish interiors such as this.
Rio's main bank doubles up as an arts performance venue.
A "pastel" is an example of local food, in this case filled with ham and cheese. The turnover is made from pastry folded around a filling and then fried.
The Santa Marta favela, in the centre of Rio, is "pacified" - meaning it was safe for the School Reporters to report from.
The School Reporters found the way of life in the favela both difficult and yet uplifting - and very different from their own in Cambridgeshire.
The teams line up waiting for the Street Children World Cup to kick off
