During the first week of term we had a chance to meet a group of students who had come to visit from Japan. They came to see what our school life was like here in England and give us a glimpse into what life is like for them in Japan.
They taught us a game called Karuta. This is a popular game in Japan and played by many children of our age. We learnt the basics to the game and practiced in our classrooms, before we had an inter-class tournament in the hall where everyone participated as part of a coloured team. It was great fun and we all received an origami made prize.
