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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to support you.
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?
