Year 5 gains taste of Japanese culture

The Year 5 Intercultural Unit has been really hands-on during Term 3,  Head of Languages Junior School, Vilma said.

Vilma said the Year 5 Intercultural Unit is a study of Japan, where students are learning about Japanese culture including social interactions, festivals, food, clothing, and housing.

“Through learning about these aspects of Japanese life students compare similarities of the Italian and Australian way of life.”

Students enjoyed making Onigiri, a Japanese rice ball, whilst reading the recipe in Italian.



Students said: “It was fun. I tried making Onigiri at home. I didn’t have some of the ingredients to make it with tuna and mayonnaise, so I just made the plain one.”
