Multi cultural week is a blast for Seaford school children

Multi cultural week was celebrated at Seaford Primary School last week with an array of events and activities designed to reflect the rich cultural life of the local area and further afield.

A street dance performance and workshop given by Harvey Burgman, a former Seaford Primary School pupil, captured many young imaginations.

Illustrator Jo Brown took Years 4 and 5 through creating the artwork for her books during a visit to the school in Wilkinson Way.

The week included yoga and food preparation with reception teacher Deborah Slot, an introduction to Buddhism from Jonathan Hayward, guitar recitals by Seaford Primary teacher Jim Entwistle, fashion design workshops with Charlie Holland and Gemma Kinloch and barn dancing to Appalachian music with fiddle player Michi Mathias and banjo player Karen Draysey.

Magali Retzlaff led an assembly which showcased Key Stage 2 children’s prowess in French speaking and singing.

Reception teacher Deborah Slot said: “The children had a great week, full of fun and challenge and great learning experiences.”

Activities were planned and led by teachers Ali Corcoran and Deborah Slot.
