KEEPING IN STEP: Year 6 pupils at Greneway School in Royston learning the skills of Indian dance.

PUPILS from Greneway School in Royston have been experiencing something a little more exotic than usual in lessons.

Year 6 students from the Garden Walk School spent the day learning Indian dance moves with the Education Dance Group.

The pupils then showed their new skills in front of the whole school in an assembly.

Terry Graves, assistant head teacher and leader of PE, said: "The day was part of our multi-cultural education programme.

"We hoped that it would be an effective and different learning experience through dance.

"The Education Dance Group workshops came highly recommended and the Year 6 pupils taking part were excited about this diverse opportunity.
