Class 3/4 learnt the history and significance of Japanese flower arrangement this term. They made their own flower holders with clay, then ventured out to find lots of colorful spring beauty. Can you see 天Heave, 地 Earth and 人Human in their arrangement? Class 5/6 were amazed how colorful and creative Japanese Obento lunch boxes are: tulips made from carrots and peas, pandas from rice and seaweed. They designed unique obento boxes themselves and cooked them at a 5/6 Master Chef Challenge. Fantastic results, all edible!
