A kaleidoscope of colour in Japanese

18 November 2021

Class 1 have been learning their colours and places in Japanese with teacher Julia Carrol. Classes often involve songs, words, games, origami and cards, but this week it was outside in the playground with colours and places. Experiencing the story “The Green Sheep” in Japanese helps to review colours and also the locations "Koko" (here) 'Soko' (there) and 'Asoko' (over there). The children lined up on the wall, each with a coloured scarf. Julia calls out the colour and direction, and the children run to that area together. From there they play and create shapes with the scarves before all coming back and starting again. It is a kaleidoscope of colour and movement when they run back together!
