Surprisingly!Children in year 4 found out similarities between the UK and Japan about traditional clothes.
Traditional Japanese clothes is called Kimonos and traditional Scottish clothes is called the Kilt.
The occasion of wearing traditional clothes are the same!
-Doing some traditional things
-Play traditional musical instruments such as bagpipes in Scotland and "koto" in Japan
-Traditional dance such as Highland Dancing in Scotland and "Nihon Buyo" in Japan
Basically the culture between two countries- the UK and Japan- is completely different, so people seem to tend to look at the side of differences.
However, every culture has some similarities, I would like children to find out similarities in culture to understand each other.
At the end of the lesson, a teacher and a child in year 3 wore "Yukata" which is a casual kimono for summer!
They look really beautiful, don't they?
