Mask mayhem

For a few weeks our class have been making some pretty cool masks. First Mr J cut out corners from boxes in the shape of a triangle, then he cut up the rest of the boxes for us to make noses, eyebrows, ears and horns. Next we taped them on with masking tape and got small ripped up peices of news paper to stick on our masks with papier mâché paste. Once we had papier mâchéd our whole mask we got some acrylic paint and painted our masks with cutural designs. Last of all we varnished them and stuck feathers, buttons and bent paper clips (for hangers) on. Here are our finished masks. They really do look great, don't they?

Our joke wall

In our class we have decided to clear a space on our wall and put a load of jokes on it. E.G why couldn't the pirate play cards? Because he was sitting on the deck. (By James) knock knock who's there? Doctor. Doctor who?  Guess you've seen the movies then. (By Hannah) here is a picture of our joke wall. I hope you like it.

Information reports

In our class we have been doing information reports about culture. Here is my report about Japan.



                                                             Japan


                                      Today in my report I will cover 5 things about Japan.
                                       Food, pets, money, Japanese words and art.


          
                    Food
The Japanese people eat lots of different things, of course there's sushi, also fish, vegetables, rice and noodles. Chicken and pork are cooked in stews, cut into strips and deep fried or stir fried with vegetables. 


                 Pets
You can have various types of pets in Japan including cats, dogs, birds, fish, hamsters, ferrets, fox's, chipmunks and raccoons. Beetles are also sold in most pet shops.


              Money
In Japan money is called 'yens.' Their paper notes are ¥1000, ¥2000, ¥5000 and ¥10,000. They probably have ¥5, ¥10, ¥20, ¥50 and ¥100 too. Their coins are ¥1, ¥5, ¥10, ¥50, ¥100 and ¥500. The '¥' sign means 'yen.'



              Japanese words
Here are some Japanese words. Su-mi-ma-sen (excuse me) hai (yes) ie (no)  sa-yo-na-ra (goodbye) a-ri-ga-to (thank you) 


             Art
Origami was originated in Japan and some pieces have Japanese designs on them. Most Japanese can make amazing things with paper.

I hope you learnt a lot Japan's culture from my report.
