Japanese Children’s Day Assembly

The children from Japanese Club wrote and presented a whole school assembly about Children’s Day in Japan. It is a day to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness. Everyone was welcomed to the hall by a recording of traditional Taisho Koto music. Then the children told us all about the koinobori legend and showed us some of the carp they had made as well as telling us about Kintaro, the boy with super human strength. We were treated to a display of the children’s strength as they flexed their muscles wearing homemade kabuto hats. The assembly finished with talk of oak leaf wrapped mochi and a recording of the traditional Children’s Day song.
Kodomo no hi everyone!

World Book Day 2017

We celebrated the 20th anniversary of World Book Day in style at CJS with a variety of events. Everyone looked fantastic in their pyjamas ready for our bedtime story sessions. It was great to hear different members of staff reading their favourite  story. We also had a huge response to our decorate a book bag competition and all of the entries looked fantastic in the hall. Children loved browsing and reading each other’s favourite books. In addition children were able to use their £1 free World Book Day token at our fantastic book fair. At CJS we know that reading for pleasure is a hugely important part of children’s learning and it was great to see so much delight being taken  in favourite books both old and new.


Native American tribes and traditions Topic

Year 4 have been looking at Native American tribes and traditions in Topic this term. Dream catchers are an old tradition created by Native American tribes to catch bad dreams and allow good dreams to float down to the person sleeping below them. Year 4 made their own dream catchers and created some instructional videos to allow you to make your own too!
