One of the highlights of Laddsworth Grade Four pupils was their annual Taste Tour, which was held on Thursday 30 June 2019. This involved research of a country of their choice during Media lessons and then presenting a poster about their respective country. There were a number of activities planned such as traditional singing and dancing and various guest speakers for the actual day which proved to be a great success. The tasting of the various foods from around the world was the highlight of the day. The end result was lots of fun and laughter and learning in the process.
