Year 5 would like to thank the Japanese volunteers who came into Michael Faraday for an afternoon of workshops. As part of ongoing language work throughout the school, Year 5 were keen to explore the culture of this very different country. We were given an introduction to the Japanese langue, calligraphy and origami. Our workshop also involved exploring, and then dressing up in traditional Japanese costume. We are hopeful of repeating this successful workshop, and possibly setting up an after school Japanese workshop.
