18/5 -6W Topic – Cherry Blossom pt.2

Hi year 6,

Firstly I would like to say a super well done to all the children that have sent in their painting/drawings/digital artwork! I have been blown away. Secondly, I would like to say that I am rather disappointed with the lack of submission, this work is not optional, you cannot say ‘I will try‘ and then do nothing else. As only a small percentage of children have completed their work so far (I did state that you had until 5pm today) I am asking that you complete the task as today’s topic work. I am expecting 90 pieces of artwork to be sent in. If you have any issues regarding the work, please email your teachers at y6upload@broadheath.coventry.sch.uk and we will do our best to support you.

Task 2

Many of you may be wondering why you have been creating cherry blossom artwork. Your second task for today is to research the importance of Cherry Blossom; find out why it is important in japanese culture.

You must answer the following questions (I have attached a newsround like that should be helpful):

  • What is Sakura?
  • What was the significance of the cherry blossom in relation to farming?
  • Why is Sakura important in Japan today?
  • How do people celebrate Sakura?
