In Art we have been making Japanese cups. They are looking good so far. Next week we are going to paint them.
We have also been looking at the famous Japanese painting “The Great Wave” and we have been painting with watercolour paint. They are looking great so far.
In writing we have been writing Haiku poems. A Haiku poem has 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line and in the third line there are 5 syllables. A Haiku poem only has 3 lines. We also drew pictures to go with our poem.
We have been learning about Japanese music and seeing the differences between traditional Japanese music and Scottish music. The Japanese music sounds unusual to us but it is good.
Did you know that in Japan when a shop is closing they play Auld Lang Syne to tell everyone to leave at the end of the day? 🙂
In RME we have been making power points and posters about different religions like Christianity and Sikhism. Today we presented them to a small group of our friends.
Big Homework is due in next Friday 6th October. If your child requires a new homework sheet or any materials to complete their project then they should speak to their class teacher as soon as possible. Remember they only need to pick one of the eight tasks on the sheet to complete.
Maths and Spelling homework is due in on a Friday every week.
Hope you have a good weekend
Kaydi, Nathan, Alistair and Murray
