Children at Whitehouse Primary School, in North Shields, took part in a special cultural diversity event.

Each year group, from nursery to Year 6, was assigned a country to research its culture and history, presenting their findings at an international day.

The hall was awash with colour, music and smells of different cuisines including French crêpes, Caribbean coconut biscuits, Spanish patatas bravas and Australian Anzac cakes. The choir performed songs while children enjoyed games and crafts.

Headteacher Rachel Woods said: “They really enjoyed planning all the multicultural activities.”

Mayor Norma Redfearn added: “It’s wonderful that the children have taken such an interest in the cultures and traditions of countries from all around the world.”
