This week we have been learning about the Japanese festival of Hanami. This festival takes place every year in Japan in April. People celebrate by going to view the blossom trees. Each year people take walks under the blossom trees or have picnics beneath the pink canopy 

of petals. 

Some members of the class brought blossom in from home to share with the class, we then put it in our small world area.

In our learning choice time we used chopsticks to pick up noodles. We estimated the length of the noodles and measured them with cubes.
