We had a wonderful visit this week from members of the Japanese Consulate in Edinburgh. After practising different greetings in Japanese we learned how to count to ten in Japanese and then we used our new number knowledge to answer a quiz all about Japan. We were also shown how to make origami sumo wrestlers. Arigatou !
We know have an outstanding display in Primary Seven depicting a beautiful Japanese sunrise behind Mount Fuji. Everyone has been involved with the creation of the display which includes; figures in traditional dress, Japanese temples, carp swimming down a Japanese river all in the shadow of a pretty cherry blossom tree. We are delighted with the overall effect, well done Primary Seven. We are pleased to hear that many pupils have almost finished their large homework piece. For those who haven’t started yet, perhaps our lesson on Tsunamis will inspire you!
We have been on an emotional roller coaster this week during our Wonder reading sessions. In the first section of the book we listened to the voice of August, the second section is told through August’s big sister Via. It opens with the words, “Far above the world, planet earth is blue”. We WONDER if anyone knows were these words come from?
Within numeracy we are continuing to look at multiples of 10 and problem solving involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
