LIMBO dancing, a treasure trail and sampling traditional cuisine were just some of the activities enjoyed by pupils on Caribbean Day at Saffron Walden's Dame Bradbury School on Friday.

It was the third multicultural day organised by teaching assistants Dory Goddard and Naryn Chrimes following successful Indian and Chinese-themed events.

PE co-ordinator Cousha Wilson said: "The multicultural days are always a great success and the children learn a lot from them and it's good they are made aware of what happens in other countries."

Pupils played cricket in Trinidad and Tobago kit, danced and sang along to a steel band and did tie-dyeing.

Ms Wilson's, friend Angela Harris, showed the children authentic Caribbean cooking.

"Mrs Harris comes from the Caribbean and she made a traditional Aloo Pie, which is potato cooked in batter," said Ms Wilson.

"They went down extremely well with the children and they were allowed to experiment cooking banana and plantain.
