CHILDREN have been experiencing a wealth of cultures during a special multicultural week at a Grays primary school.

Year Three and Four pupils at Deneholm Primary School in Culford Road, have been learning circus skills with Splats Circus Workshops.

Headteacher Linda Woolley said: "Pupils really enjoyed themselves as well as developing their coordination skills which will help them with their work across the curriculum."

Other activities they have been taking part in this week are: Mendhi painting, Australian aboriginal art work, African drumming and sampling food from other cultures.
