GEOGRAPHY was brought to  life for pupils at a North Lynn school with a week of themed activities.

Teacher, Rosa Sanchez, went back to her roots when she brought the flavour of Spain to pupils at St Edmund’s Community Foundation School in Kilham’s Way.

The whole school learned about different cultures through a range of activities which included crafts and a food tasting day.

Miss Sanchez, who has been a Year 4/5 class teacher at the school since September, explained that the new event proved popular.

“It was the first time we have done this in school and the children and teachers loved it,” she said.

Nursery children used their craft skills to make flowers in the colours of the flag of Andalusia and the older children researched cities and culture, learned a few steps of flamenco dancing and made castanets. Supermarket chain Tesco donated hot chocolate, bread and olive oil for the tasting day.

The staff also made cardboard models of  a matador and a flamenco dancer which were decorated by pupils.
