YOUNGSTERS at a Huddersfield school have found fame after appearing in a new teaching aid.
Twenty-six pupils of Christ Church Woodhouse Junior, Infant and Nursery School, Deighton, modelled for a pack of alphabet cards.
The pack features Caribbean fruit and vegetables and was produced by Fartown publishing and educational company Primary Colours.
Each card shows Caribb- ean produce on one side and a child on the other side holding the food.
The alphabets are part of a package sold by Primary Colours to help schools teach cultural diversity, which they are legally obliged to do.
The packs, which cost £50 each, have been used in schools in London and Sheffield and may well become a common sight in schools across the country.
Mr Tony Caulton, headteacher at Christ Church Woodhouse, said: "The alphabet was a joint venture between Primary Colours and ourselves after they came here to do a workshop.
"The children have been delighted with the results. It has really raised their self-esteem."
Marcia Hutchinson, editor of Primary Colours, said: "It was great fun photographing the children. Both staff and pupils were brilliant, even though I was asking four and five-year-olds to hold some funny poses."
McKinley Gay, who runs a Caribbean food stall in Huddersfield open market, and supplied the food for the photos, said: "A lot of children who were born in England do not know much about Caribbean food and it is part of their heritage."
The children on the cards have been given packs to take home. Other cards have been pinned up in the classrooms.
