Cultures from all over the world were celebrated with singing, dancing, drumming and even food at an Ilford school’s annual Diversity Day last week.
Cranbrook Primary School, in The Drive, holds a day of special events every year to teach pupils about international culture.
Each year group was given a recipe from a different country’s cuisine to cook a tasty national dish.
There was then African drumming and an eclectic talent show featuring Polish dancing, folk singing, Bhangra, beatboxing and even Baa Baa Black Sheep “sung” in sign language.
Diane Aldsworth, a parent rep on the Cranbrook Friends’ Association, said: “We’ve been doing the Diversity Day for the last four or five years but this was the best ever.
“The children had amazing fun and the parents who came to watch enjoyed it.
“Cranbrook Primary School has a very diverse community.
