In this term we have been extending and revising our knowledge and description of body parts, which we first learned in Year 2. We learned four new adjectives (big, small, long and short) to make sentences to describe different body parts. We are also extending our recognition of Stroke 2 Hiragana. They are 17 Hiragana in this category. We use the iKana Touch app on the iPads to test our recognition through speed tests.
We also learned about ラジオたいそう(Rajio Taisou) or Radio calisthenics, which was first introduced in Japan in 1928. Today, Rajio Taiso is still used in schools in Japan as a warm-up activity for physical education classes and during sports day activities.
