The children are always really glad to see their friends at this session. It seemed like such a long time since we'd seen our HE friends because of Christmas and New Year. We saw lots of family and non-HE friends instead :)
There were a few different activities to choose from - pagoda building; manga drawing; a whole table of volcano related stuff; crafts for Boys' Day, Girls Day, New Years Festival; Origami and sushi making. They also got to watch Kiki's Delivery Service [DVD] from Studio Ghibli.

|Sushi by The Girl|
What we learnt -
- pagodas have five archtectural elements corresponding to Earth, Wind, Fire, Water and the Void.
- New Year celebrations last for 3 days. It is a very important festival in Japan.
- how to slice a roll of sushi cleanly by wetting the knife and slicing forwards first.
Later, The Girl had a cornet lesson and they both went swimming with their Dad at Barnsley Metrodome.
