Festival of Culture & Ruyton’s Lantern

Year 4 had a fantastic, action-packed day at the ‘Festival of Culture’ at the Marches school. Hands-on workshops included drumming, street-dancing, Fair Trade, ‘Around the World’ and drama, whilst we were also treated to a brilliant drumming performance plus a presentation by Wolverhampton school children who shared their religious beliefs and culture. Having made our own ‘lantern’ in school we then had the opportunity to swap our light creations with another school. Our children worked with great enthusiasm and made the most of the brilliant opportunities on offer; well done Year 4!

Ruyton’s Lantern:

These pupils inspired us with a very informative presentation about their Muslim faith.
