Youngest Students enjoy Japanese Week

Posted: 10th May 2024

As part of their creative curriculum, girls in our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) enjoyed ‘Japanese week’ led by Mrs MacPartlan, who was born and brought up in Japan.
Activities included making ‘Koinobori’ koi and Kabuto origami hats. Mrs MacPartlan demonstrated how to make sushi (complete with a video demonstration of her dog, Leo, enthusiastically devouring sushi) and explaining traditional Japanese dress, the kimono and yukata.
The girls also enjoyed a live Zoom meeting with Mrs MacPartlan’s daughter, Naomi, who was born and brought up in the UK, and who now lives and works in Tokyo. Naomi showed the girls the hustle and bustle of Tokyo as she was making her way home after work.
