Taste of India at primary school

Waiting for Video...

Shepeau Stow Primary School was a jewel in Lincolnshire’s crown for a day when children had a taste of India last week.

About 20 pupils took part in a number of Indian-themed activities such as dancing and dressing up in saris as they were introduced to a culture very different from their own.

The Indian Experience event last Tuesday was run by Grantham-based Sunita Patel who presents cultural and religious workshops in schools throughout Lincolnshire.

She gave pupils a talk on Indian customs for weddings and births and the Hindu festival known as Diwali.

Teacher Nicola Harrison said: “The children have been learning about India and the Hindu religion in their geography and RE lessons respectively, so they really enjoyed the day.

“They loved dressing up in Indian clothes and had plenty of questions for Sunita to answer.

“We’re putting together an information book on India and I hope what the children learnt will come out in that.”
