This week Milky Way continued to spend a significant amount of time practicing for both the Christmas Show’s musical acts as well as The Bremen Town Musicians Play. To break up the week the class went to the park on Monday afternoon with the Elementary classes.
The students’ highlight of the week was a trip to JA Matsumoto on Wednesday where they illustrated and wrote short messages on rice bags which were to be shipped to Mali. The classes also had the chance to see Mocchi being made from rice and to participate pounding the rice with the mallet. They were then able to eat the fresh mocchi that was made. On Friday, the students wrote short letters of gratitude to JA staff for inviting them to participate.
