Japan assembly or lesson for Tokyo Olympics 2020 theme

This powerpoint introduces Japanese culture, the Olympic mascots and emblems and then teaches basic greetings and numbers in Japanese. It was written for Y9 but would work just as well as a starting point for primary, perhaps without the assumption that there may well be some in the audience obsessed with Japanese pop culture who might know answers to questions. I’ve written guidance on the notes pages and ideas of what to discuss based on having delivered it, trying to assume it’s being delivered by someone with minimal familiarity with Japan and Japanese. If I’ve made assumptions there I do apologise but most of it is googlable - the Japan Foundation has a lot of good resources.

A booklet taking students through basic phrases and vocabulary. I use this in class in the last few lessons or sometimes give to more independent students to complete over a holiday period.

Japanese festivals and annual events reading and research.

Preparation for study of Japanese events and festivals. Suitable for introducing the topic in preparation for an essay or class discussion. Includes a passage about some main events (New year, summer festivals, snow festival, children's day) with brief description of typical activities followed by questions prompting students to research their chosen festival in detail and learn some key vocabulary. The language and kanji are suitable for A level students, but could be adapted with more furigana for a challenge at the end of GCSE (I've attached the word version so it can be modified to suit students' knowledge). I have a GCSE version which I will upload separately.
