Pupils bring African cul­ture to city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&World Update -

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.”
