Multicultural Day

On Wednesday 15th March we celebrated our first Multicultural Day at school.

All children and staff came together to mark the importance of cultural diversity.

KS1 and KS2 were split into groups and were given the opportunity to explore the world in one day! The children were each given a passport to travel with, in which they excitedly collected and stuck a flag sticker for each destination they traveled to. Throughout the day, the children explored many aspects from different cultures including dance, sport, art, food and language.

KS1 visited the following countries: Thailand, Japan, India, Australia and Greece. They tasted Thai food, learnt some simple Japanese, learnt a Bollywood dance, created some Aboriginal art and took part in a mini Olympics.
KS2 visited the following countries: Sweden, China, Poland, Kenya and Brazil. They learnt a traditional Swedish dance, created Chinese lanterns, cooked and tasted traditional Polish pancakes, learnt some Swahili and practiced Brazilian drumming.

It was a fantastic experience for all involved and was thoroughly enjoyed by all members of our school community.
