CHILDREN from the RA Butler Schools in Saffron Walden enjoyed the tastes of foreign cultures during their multi-cultural week.

Each class learned about a different country and were treated to cosmopolitan cuisines at lunchtime, sampling Italian, Oriental and American foods.

Foreign students from the

Bell International Language School visited the children to enhance their understanding of other cultures.

Parents who originated from countries such as Turkey, Iran and Russia joined in the fun by describing their home countries to the children.

They also taught the youngsters some useful words and phrases.

Multi-cultural event organiser Cheryl McKee said: "The children had great fun.

"The multi-cultural week was a great way for them to meet their new classmates and teachers, and they all enjoyed the foreign foods.

"The American food went down especially well!"

As well as sampling the culinary delights of other cultures, the children made Japanese Willow artwork.

They also studied aboriginal artwork and took part in observational drawing of foods and fruit from Morocco.
