Pupils had a taste of India during a special cultural day.

Sunita Patel visited Uffington Primary School on Thursday last week to teach children all about the country.

The whole school learned about Diwali and the different religions within India during a morning assembly. After that they split into year groups for a series of workshops.

Older children learned about cultural differences between the UK and India.

And Key Stage 1 and Reception classes had a real treat when they were given the chance to taste some authentic India cuisine.

School administrator Sarah Lawson said: “The younger pupils really enjoyed the food. Some of them had never tasted it before.”

The day was organised to coincide with the pupils’ current work.

The younger children have been studying India as their topic this term, while Year 3 and 4 pupils have been looking at the country in their geography classes.
