In Term 3 children will start by looking at festivals in Japan and learning about months, days of the week and dates with the aim of creating the next few months of their calendar.
They will also select their favourite poems to create an English school version of Hyakunin isshu, a popular game in Japan for learning 100 famous poems, often played at New Year.
We will then look at WWII through the eyes of Japanese animation. The short extracts of films from Ghibli Studio will be shown in Japanese and the children will discuss in English topics that arise. The extracts will have differing focuses according to the requirements of the class.
