Culture Week at Junior School

By Shree M, Satya R and Anishka G, Year 6

This week was Culture week which took place across the entire school . Numerous fun and exciting activities took place. The purpose of the celebration was to teach our wonderful multi-diverse school about embracing and respecting other’s differences. Activities such as the workshop by BelEve also reminded us about empowering women and breaking down stereotypical barriers. 

Artwork 

Throughout the course of the week, to celebrate Culture Week, we created artwork based on various artists. In KS1 they based their artwork on an artist called Brianna McCarthy and took some coloured cards and did a portrait of themselves using various materials, using mixed media and a layering technique to create the effect. In KS2 they did art based on an artist called Njideka Akunyili Crosby and they created a collage of what represents them and their family and personality. All of
our wonderful art is going to be put on display.

Reading

The Diversity Council had the opportunity to read books to KS1. The books were focused on showcasing diversity and people of mixed race. The younger girls were extremely intrigued and
enjoyed the experience. 

   
Music
In music, thanks to Ms Barnes, we all got the opportunity to embrace new types of music to celebrate Culture Week. We learned about an amazing variety of instruments and how they were made. In Year 6 we learned about instruments like the Didgeridoo and the Steel Pan and how they are made. 

Dancing
To celebrate Culture Week, Years 1 – 6 had an opportunity to learn a dance from different cultures and countries. The Choreographer kindly shared the different dances with us and let us get a taste of these different cultures. This amazing opportunity spread through KS1 to KS2 and allowed us all to share the fun! To start with, Reception did Morris dancing (which is a type of English folk dancing) whilst Year 1 did Indian dancing. Year 2, as they are learning about the topic Africa, had the chance to do African dancing. Year 3 had the opportunity to express themselves with Chinese dancing and Year 4 had a unique chance to embrace the Haka.

Finally, Year 5 got to do the Samba from Brazil and Year 6 did Irish dancing. 

Culture Week has allowed us to embrace and share our different cultures and this opportunity has definitely all taught us something new.
