On Monday 19th July, Year 3 continued with their Enrichment projects, this time concentrating on the Japanese culture. In this instance, the girls discovered the importance of the Cherry Blossom to the Japanese people.
The cherry blossom, or Sakura in the Japanese language, recalls in its symbolism the whole Japanese philosophy linked to the culture of patience, respect for nature and inner peace. The symbolism associated with this tree owes much to this recurrence and to the value it represents for the Japanese.
We took some pictures of the girls during this workshop, which can be seen in the gallery below.
