Today we learnt about Hachiko, a famous Japanese traditional tale, the dog who waited for their owner without fail, despite the fact that he never returned.
In pre-access we looked at a simplified version of the story, highlighting the key language and themes from the story. We used these themes to attempt to express our thoughts and feelings, with as effective language as possible.
In access we looked to delve deeper into the more complex language associated, as well as the feelings of the owner and that of the dog. With this, we tried to express how we might feel in the situation through discussion and group work.
After this introduction, we had different activities, pre-access worked on an illustration of the story and access worked on sentence work.
Then, we searched long and hard for the Hachiko pictures around English Pocket, seeing if we could find them all in time!
We all had fun with the activity!
