Whitelands Park Primary School Better never stops

Year 3

Japanese Gardens

During this unit the children designed and made a Japanese garden using sand and various sized pebbles. The main concept that the children had to follow was that the pebbles had to represent flowing water through the garden.


The children thought carefully about how and where in their garden designs they would use the pebbles to represent the flowing water. They also learnt how to write in Japanese and were able to choose which word they wanted to paint on their large pebble, from the choice: live, love and laugh.
