Year 4 had a fantastic day in the Oriental Museum on Wednesday. The trip was the introduction to 14 weeks work about China and Japan.
The morning began learning a Chinese Dragon Dance used to make the rains come. Unfortunately they perfected the Chinese Dragon Dance so well it has rained since they stopped!!! We now wish we had learnt the Sun dance!
Next they learnt to fight like Samurai Warriors. They were taught how to defend themselves against an attacker before Mrs Lakey was overpowered and threatened with a sword.
The rest of the day was spent learning abort Japanese and Chinese culture and trying Manga drawing.
Thankyou to the Parent Helpers that came along, ensuring the children got the most out of the day.
