A school has held a special day to celebrate and engage their pupils with Caribbean heritage and culture.

Cranbrook Primary School, in The Drive, Ilford, served up delicious jerk chicken and other food from the region at the event last week.

Excited pupils got to tuck into an overflowing chocolate fountain.

Schoolchildren had their faces painted and Cranbrook teachers and students put on a special dance display.

As part of the annual diversity event, each class learned about a different island in the Caribbean during the week.
