Hellesdon pupils enjoy learning about different cultures
Hellesdon pupils are having fun learning about different cultures as they prepare for their school's festive show.
Children at Heather Avenue Infant School are spending the weeks leading up to their performance of Children of the World learning about countries including China, Poland, Australia, America and Malawi.
The 97 children, aged between four and seven, have been split into different groups with each group concentrating on a different country.
The children's activities so far have included learning about American cheerleading and making a routine for their school, making African lion masks, baking Polish biscuits, making Chinese lanterns, and creating pictures of Christmas day on the beach in Australia.
Cath Williams, year one and two teacher at the school, said: 'The children are really enjoying the activities. Some of the children already have experiences of these countries, and it is helping all of the children broaden their knowledge of different cultures and countries.
'The children are having a great time.'
Heather Avenue Infant School's performance of Children of the World will be on December 9 and 10.
