PUPILS from Abbots Green School had an international week with tastes of different cultures.

On Monday, members of the Internationa Women’s Group in Bury St Edmunds visited the Moreton Hall school and spoke to children about their homelands of Russia Italy and India.

Children were shown Russian traditional costume, told about the Roman Empire and made Roman sandals. They were also shown how to fold a sari.

Tasty treats including beautifully crafted sweets from Russia and Italy as well as Indian and Chinese foods were also sampled.

On Wednesday, a Seikh education officer from Northampton visited and they learned about turbans, dance and fashion and on Thursday pupils enjoyed an African drumming display by pupils at Westley Middle School.

On Friday, it was the youngsters’ turn and they came into school wearing costumes from around the world.

Nicola Hubbard, school business development manager, said: “It was a really fun week and gave the children a real taste of different cultures.”
