Japanese Class Week 5+6

1/2C and 1/2 H working on their animal wordsearch

 

Last week in the Japanese classroom, Foundation and Grade 1/2 have been learning about animals and the sounds they make. The YouTube link can be accessed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7sxMVqIq3s

This week, we played animals bingo and it was a great way for us to remember the animal names!

Grade 3/4 and 5/6 learnt how to say the months of the year last week, and this week we are learning how to say the dates of the month which is a little bit tricky! You can watch this YouTube link again to help you remember the irregular dates that don’t follow a pattern: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XM8i9jinE5k

Don’t forget!! We can also sing the dates song to help us remember the irregular dates: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZ6daiEil8M
