More than 200 year two pupils, aged six and seven-years-old, from four schools in the Hethersett cluster brushed up on their English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh culture in a salute to British values earlier this week.

Youngsters from Hethersett Woodside Infant and Nursery School performed an Irish dance, while Mulbarton Infant School donned tartan for a Scottish jig set to I Would Walk 500 Miles.

After a Welsh country routine from Little Melton Primary School and a Morris dance from Cringleford Primary School, the pupils came together for a joint song.

Fiona Whiting, cluster development worker, said: 'The children absolutely loved it. They really enjoyed seeing everyone else's dances and everyone was in great spirits.'

Cringleford Primary School headteacher and leader of the cluster Neil Henry added: 'It was great to see the children coming together to share their learning about Great Britain.'

The annual cluster days have been held since the London Olympics 2012.
