Pupils bring African culture to city
WITH South Africa in the limelight as the World Cup continues, pupils from Winyates Primary School have been learning about the country’s traditions.
From its geography and culture to the climate and animals, pupils from the school in Orton Goldhay, have delved into the history of the country.
As part of their learning, they also made a South African flag by dressing in different colours and gathering together on the school field.
Staff called in a helicopter to photograph the youngsters.
The four to 11-year-olds also got the chance to look around the helicopter, watch it land and take off and ask the captain and pilot questions.
Inclusion support teacher Danny Bowyer said: “The children love learning about new countries and cultures.
“The project started as part of Sport Relief in March because the pupils wanted to find out about poverty and schools in Africa.”
