Japanese students build on their vocabulary

Year 2 Japanese students have been exploring the topic of water in Term 3.

Children experimented using vegetables, and explored whether or not the items would float or sink in the water.

“Children learnt various vegetable names in Hiragana and Katakana and then practiced their sentence structure in both speaking and writing,” IGS Languages Teacher Noriko said.

“The children really enjoyed this experiment. They particularly loved the show and tell activity via Zoom.”

Students were also asked to use household items and try the same experiment.

Noriko said the exercise encouraged students to build on their vocabulary, and deepened their understanding of sentence structures.
