The Junior Girls had the opportunity to learn more about the Japanese language and culture on their annual Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Day. A wide variety of fun activities were arranged by teachers Mrs Hornby and Mrs Labbé.

The morning began with a Ju-Jitsu demonstration during assembly and girls had the opportunity to try this martial art for themselves in a series of workshop sessions. Pupils tried painting their name in Japanese characters and learned more about the Japanese language. Art sessions allowed girls to explore origami, create their own carp kites and make drawings in a manga style. For Years 5 and 6 there were musical activities using Garage Band and a quiz to test their new knowledge.

A themed lunch was the perfect accompaniment to the MFL Day. Girls also enjoyed seeing Mrs Hornby and Mrs Labbé dressed up in sumo wrestler costumes over the lunchtime break!
