PUPILS from Katherine Semar Infant School learned a spot of African culture during a visit from a specialist company.
Afrikan Fusion instructor Chiedza Chapanda was invited to the school in Ross Close, Saffron Walden as part of the school's term-time theme of Stories from Around the World.
Each class learned African singing, chanting, dance, and got the chance to have a go at drumming, before showcasing their new talents to parents and staff.
The children also tucked into a tasty African lunch, which included Nigerian Joloff rice with chicken and Moroccan lamb tangine with cous-cous and vegetables.
