Japan Day in Room 23

On Friday 4th October we were transported to the East when the 4th class children in room 23 celebrated their own Japan Day. The children have been working hard on their Japan projects over the past few weeks. Some children presented their projects in class. Many of the children dressed up in Japanese clothing and designed their own t-shirts and outfits for the day. Katie and Ciaran made some delicious sushi for the class to taste.
