Pupils at St Edmundsbury Primary School embraced Japanese culture and a fashion forward take on road safety.
Deputy head Lyndsey Allsopp organised a Japan Day after she jetted off to Tokyo and Kyoto with other headteachers to look at the country’s education.
The trip was funded by The Japan Foundation and Mrs Allsopp organised various activities to ‘open up the world’ to St Edmundsbury pupils.
They donned kimonos and sandles, made sushi, enjoyed Japanese drumming and created Kokeshi Dolls.
Meanwhile, parent Ryoko Leveritt showed pupils some calligraphy.
The school hopes to start a Japanese club in the new year.
Mrs Allsopp said: “The children absolutely loved it - they still remember the Japanese greetings we did and we’re still using them.”
Meanwhile, the school’s junior road safety officers organised a ‘Brightness Day’ to encourage children to dress brightly in dull winter days so they can ‘be safe, be seen’.
Each child received a hi-vis jacket from Specsavers so they can be safe when walking or cycling over the next few months.
The road safety officers held an assembly to launch the day and a catwalk show to display the bright clothing.
Prizes were given to the boy and girl in each class with the brightest outfit.
