Japanese Enrichment Week
Applicant: Grewelthorpe CE Primary School
A week of activities celebrating Japanese culture at a small, village school in Yorkshire, offering students the chance to experience a culture completely unknown to them. Activities included a taiko drumming workshop and Japanese dance, as well as arts and crafts such as koi nobori making and exploring the works of Hokusai. The children also tried Japanese food and took part in origami.
The initial event was postponed from 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions, but went ahead with great success in Spring 2021. The children thoroughly enjoyed the week and have shown interest in continuing some of the new hobbies experienced learnt.
