In Spring 2021, Bede Academy in Blyth, Northumberland held a weekly ‘Japan Club’ after school for Year 7’s to explore Japanese language and culture through arts and craft activities and Japanese food tasting.
Alongside this, the school held a special afternoon of raku firing with potter John Scott. An event aimed to bring fun and inspiration to students after a difficult year.
Japan Club has been so successful, that the school intends to continue, offering further sessions to Year 8 and 9 next term.
