PLC students have learnt a lot about Japan and Japanese language in the past 7 weeks.
Students have been building their communication skills with respectful Japanese manners, and developing their intercultural understanding. In every lesson, we practice how to say Konnichiwa (Hello) and Sayounara (Goodbye) with a bow, and count Ichi (One), Ni (Two) and San (Three).
I am very proud of the preppies adjusting to the new learning environment and showing great enthusiasm finding out about Japan and Japanese language.
SLC students started a new unit focusing on positivity for the last 3 weeks.
In this unit, students explored the power of using Positive Self-Talk. Students learnt the six positive Japanese words and are encouraged to use them anytime, anywhere. Students made the colourful band with a choice of Positive Japanese words and placed it on their school bag to take home. I hope your child has shared with you and family what they wrote in the band.
Another new thing students are learning is to sing "If you are happy and you know it" in Japanese.
I cannot wait to share their beautiful singing in Japanese once they learn the whole song!
