Creative writing Week 1 Mission

Last week we had a mission to complete for our writing. Take a look at some of the work the tamariki produced. Ka wani kē koutou! Keep an eye out for our Mission 2 work which will be posted next week.



The final product ...Sakura paintings

Japanese Sakura art

Today we started our Japanese Sakura art work. First we read all about Sakura and why it is so important in Japan. We also learnt a little about the Buddhist religion and Samurai warriors.
Then we started our ink blowing with straws to make the tree trunk which we will decorate with Sakura tomorrow.
