Diversity Week 2017
This week Rockliffe Manor celebrated our ever popular annual Diversity Week. Throughout this week the children have participated in many new and exciting learning experiences. We have taken part in Indian dance and clay workshops, learnt songs from Jamaica and Ghana, made aboriginal paintings, cooked spring rolls and German biscuits, created our own 'cork art' and designed our own Moomin characters amongst other things! Our Year 2 class also travelled to Woodhill to take part in a steel pan workshop with their friends from our partner school.
On Wednesday Rockliffe Manor also held our now famous 'World Cafe', where members of the school community kindly donated sweet and savoury dishes from all over the world. The children and parents all really enjoyed sampling the wonderful food on offer and the event was, as always, a great success! To mark the end of Diversity Week the children and staff were invited to come to school wearing clothes that reflect an aspect of their individuality and identity, this included national dress or traditional clothing, clothing from any sports teams, clubs or groups they belong to or wearing the colours of their national flag. We would like to thank the whole school community for their support during this week and for helping to make it so enjoyable for the children at Rockliffe Manor.
