The students are then divided into small groups and participate in a variety of activities that help them to recognise Hiragana scripts.
“They particularly enjoy playing ring toss and the Hiragana puzzle,” Machiko Sensei said.
“These hands-on activities allow the students to be engaged and learn the letters in a fun way.”
Year 1 students are also introduced to a system called “Hiragana Dojo”.
“When the students demonstrate their skills of reading Hiragana scripts, they receive a belt certificate,” she said.
“This system enables the students to be motivated and challenged to learn Hiragana scripts.
“The students cannot wait for Wednesday, our Hiragana Dojo challenge.”
