Experiencing a different culture has excited children at Lutton St Nicholas Primary School where an India Day took place this term.

Art, fashion and food were part of a day shared with pupils from Gedney Church End Primary School which included tasting Indian dishes, wearing traditional clothes and creating pictures linked to the world-famous Taj Mahal.

Teacher Sophie Thirgood said: “Our pupils have been studying India as their topic this term and we wanted to make their learning as real as possible, so we organised an Indian cultural day of activities.

“It started with a general introduction for the children from workshop leader Swathi Sreenivasan before making Diva lamps, Indian dancing, trying on authentic Indian costumes and then trying out food from an Indian restaurant in Spalding.

“We often take the children out for an experience, which would be difficult for India, but we were able to have Indian activities at the school and they really enjoyed it.”
