CHILDREN and parents, brothers and sisters shared experiences from across the world in a day of hands-on art workshops at Wickhambrook Primary School.

The share day was one of the activities for Global Awareness Week, in which children enjoyed the tastes of foreign foods, watched an animated Japanese film and ‘flew’ to different destinations to explore countries as diverse as Vietnam, Australia, Russia, Peru, Canada and Italy.

During the share day, children and parents moved through 12 different activities from different countries including Australia, America and China.

They made native American-style drums and created artwork in the style of Aboriginal art, Chinese dragons and potato printing.

Georgina Ellis, headteacher, said: “It was well-received by parents and was good for the children as it helped create a greater understanding of the wider world.
