Japanese Children's Day
Our Year 4 girls have been studying Japan: geography, history, music, art. And on May 5 they marked Japanese Children's Day, a day to respect children and celebrate their happiness. It has been a day of celebration in Japan since ancient times and was designated a national holiday in 1948. Our pupils created colourful fish, raised a carp shaped windsock (koinobori) as is traditional in Japan, and tried on a Japanese kimono. We love to learn about different customs around the world.
