Year 1 Multicultural Week

Year 1 were very busy during multi-cultural week, every class learned a song or poem to perform during our Harvest Celebration Assembly and each class brought in lots of food donations.

The children spent their time learning about their chosen countries in class and used this newly found information to create fact posters. We learnt all about famous cities, landmarks and food! Year 2 then made a traditional dish from their country and presented it to their parents after school.

Reception Multicultural week

The Reception children had a lovely food tasting day on Friday 4th October. The children were joined by their grown-ups to taste our amazing multicultural cooking for around the world (China, Spain, Scotland, France and Sri-Lanka) The children enjoyed making a Spanish fruit salad, Chinese stir fry, Scottish shortbread, Sri Lankan potato cakes and a French apple cake. We learnt how to safely cut and prepare fresh food. The children had a wonderful time and loved spending time with their parents and carers. The parents looked like they enjoyed themselves as well! Thank you to everyone who joined us.
