A Hindu workshop offered students all kinds of new experiences at Radwinter C of E Primary School.

The pupils in Hedgehog Class turned up and found their normal classroom looked different, which set the tone and scene for the workshop.

A school spokesperson said: "It was magical to enter our classroom and find it transformed."

They learned about what it was like to attend a Mandir, listened to music and found out about many of the Hindu gods.

They put on traditional dress and learned a dance which used sticks.

They also performed a poem with actions about Ganesh, and learned to meditate, which they found relaxing.

The workshop also highlighted that it was important to treat all living things with respect and kindness.
