Undokai - Japanese Sports Day
The Japanese Sports Day (undokai in Japanese) is a popular event in the school calendar; it’s a fun-filled day with an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration.
The Japanese Sports Day Games Pack contains illustrations and instructions of 14 typical games that are played at a Japanese sports day, allowing you to organise an authentic undokai event of your own. The games in the pack can be used as standalone activities, introduced via the scheme of work (below), or to plan your own event.
Why not hold your own Sports Day? The At Home Edition Pack contains 8 games adapted from the main pack which allow you to recreate your very own undokai in the garden or in the park with minimal equipment and small team sizes. You can add your own variations and ideas too!
Additional Resources for Schools & Teachers
The scheme of work introduces the different aspects of a Japanese sports day through 6 lessons.
