We’ve been feeling Japanese

Japanese Day was the highlight of week 4! Prep C were all decked out in their shiro or aka colours along with some other Japanese favourites. The outdoor games enabled the children to learn about team sportsmanship by being a good winner and loser and praising everyone’s effort. The sushi was delicious and our Tanuki masks helped us to remember a traditional Japanese story. Thanks to our parent group again!

Well done to Koa-Jean who displayed great confidence in agreeing to hold the Japanese Day Cup in front of the whole school and Stelly and Tessa for bringing their Tanuki masks to assembly. Thanks also to Mr Nickeas.

We are extending our knowledge of time by using analogue clocks to half past and matching analogue and digital times. We heard a fantastic story called “Bitsy” about a bat and her adventures with nocturnal and day time animals. We have also been practising reciting the months of the year in the correct order and videoing each other with the ipads.

Almost all of the home projects have been handed in and we will share these next week. We will be discussing making oral presentations and how to use our voices, volume and eye contact to engage our audience. Watch out for our class book on display!

Mrs Moncrieff is at a professional development day on Monday, about developing handwriting and fine motor skills so have a lovely day and see you all on Wednesday.
