Caribbean music and dance workshop comes to Forest Gate school
Little ones in Forest Gate experienced the sounds and vibes of the Caribbean during a dance workshop.
The children at Woodgrange Infant School in Forest Gate were ‘transported’ to Trinidad and Tobago by the Irie Steelpan, as part of their celebrations of Black History Month.
Husband and wife team, Junior and Marcella, who offer children music and dance workshops were visiting the school in Sebert Road on Thursday,
The school has been marking Black History Month with a variety of activities.
Deputy Headteacher Maria Lewington said: “We ran a family writing project to encourage families to write about where they come from and their journey to Forest Gate. As a school we believe families who talk together learn together, and this was a fantastic opportunity to develop that link between home and school. It highlighted all our similarities and helped celebrate our differences.”
