'Experience Ethiopia' Day

On Tuesday 15th October our whole school took part in an 'Experience Ethiopia' day where the children took part in various workshops throughout the day to learn more about a country so different to our own.

The day was a huge success and our children thoroughly enjoyed immersing themselves in finding out about such an amazing country.

The workshops on offer covered a wide variety of subjects across the curriculum and enabled the children to identify similarities and differences to life in Gunthorpe.

Workshops included:

Cooking and Story telling with Mrs Findlay

'Coffee and Cotton' with Miss Bottrell

Tribal Music and Dancing with Mrs Nolan

Art with Miss Wynands

'Religion in Ethiopia' with Mrs Bills

History and Geography with Mrs Brown

Sport and the Olympics with Mr Tyler


A huge thank you to all of the children and staff who showed great enthusiasm and came to school dressed in the colours of the Ethiopian flag.  A fantastic day was had by all.
