In preparation for the Olympic Games starting in Tokyo on 23rd July, Upper School are learning about Japan. So far we have learnt that Japan is an archipelago but has four main islands, the largest of which is Honshu, which is where Tokyo is found. Japan is roughly 6000 miles away ,has a population of around 125 million people and the currency is the Japanese Yen. The Japanese flag is called Hinomaru meaning 'the circle of the sun'; Japan is often called 'The Land of the Rising Sun'.
We are also learning about the Ancient Olympics as part of our study of Ancient Greece.
