On Friday 27th May, the whole school carried out various activities that showcased the different cultures of the school. Every class took part in a show and tell about their culture. The children then had the opportunity to get involved in a number of activities such as creating a healthy snack that the children then sampled. In the afternoon the children rotated across the year group and got the opportunity to learn about various countries celebrating their heritage (Ireland, Somalia, Jamaica, India and Pakistan). They also completed various activities such as; learning Irish dances, decorating their own 'Somali dresses', making their very own hats using feathers, and they got to design their own henna.
