Laura Guggiari, Year 5 teacher, said that it was a fantastic day with all the children dressing in traditional African clothes. She said they had grins on their faces all day.

The day was arranged by CHET (Chilford Hundred Education Trust) which oversees the school.

The day included samba drumming and African dance with the activities changing depending on each year group.

Ms Guggiari said: “They absolutely adored it and were drumming on their lunch boxes afterwards.”
