How are we the same and different?
For our project this term we are exploring and comparing different cultures. Specifically, Japanese culture and our own. We have had a Japanese WOW day which involved learning How to say our names in Japanese and creating a variety of Japanese arts and Crafts. The children showed fantastic courage when they tried the Japanese food and some were pleasantly surprised. It was great to see the children thoroughly enjoying themselves at our Aikido training session where they were taught the important of respect and calmness in challenging situations. There are many more exciting moments to come so check back here for updates.
