This week, students in Grade 1/2 learned about Hanami, a celebration that takes place every Spring in Japan. Hanami literally translates to “flower watching” and is an annual celebration of Sakura and springtime. People gather around cherry blossom trees with family and friends to enjoy delicious drinks and food under the beautiful pink trees, often with the petals gently snowing from the branches when in full bloom.
Using potato stamps, students created beautiful paintings of the Sakura flower. Take a look at our beautiful creations below!
