Class 5 and 6 Diversity Week

Leave a comment

As part of school Diversity week Classes 5 and 6 were taught the art of Bollywood Dance, made naan bread and visited Chilli Indian restaurant in Barnsley town centre.

The children learned how to dance Bollywood style, using careful hand movements to tell a story. In a special Diversity assembly the children were able to remember the steps and presented their dance to the school. Well done!

Everyone had great fun making naan bread which they were able to take home and eat. They followed a recipe, accurately measuring ingredients and then shaping the dough. The naan breads were a great success and easy enough to try at home.

Mr Boparai, parent of A in Class 6, invited all the children in Classes 5 and 6 to dine at his restaurant, Chilli, at no cost. We were welcomed warmly by Mr Boparai and his staff. The food was delicious; many had second helpings. We were overwhelmed by such kindness and generosity. Thank-you once again! Any donations from parents are warmly welcomed and can be passed to the class teacher. Mr Boparai has suggested the collection be sent to ‘Prabh Aasra’ Home for the Helpless which is a very worthy cause based in Chandigarh, Punjab.

The day was very eventful, with unplanned visits to Barnsley Central Library and Experience Barnsley after the train for our return journey was cancelled.  The children were very sensible and well-behaved throughout, with members of the Library service even commenting on their excellent conduct.

The children declared the day, “The best trip ever!”
