This week, we would like you to investigate the Geography of Japan.

Your work for English from Tuesday onwards will be to write up what you find out. 

Please look at the English page to help you to set it out correctly.

Earlier this year, one of our Computing topics was Power Point so we would like to see your work as a Power Point presentation if possible.  If you do not have access to Power Point, you can do a leaflet instead.  Remember we are looking at the GEOGRAPHY of Japan, so please concentrate on that.

Here is a Must, Should, Could list of things to include.

Remember MUST is what you really need to include.   SHOULD is what we would really like to see and COULD is what you could put in if you are trying to impress us!

And here are 2 pictures for you to colour in if you wish. They are by a famous Japanese artist called Hokusai. One is called  'Great wave off Kanagawa' .  It is a picture of a tsunami. How many boats can you spot?  The other picture is called 'Red Fuji' and is a picture of the famous Japanese volcano, Mount Fuji. You could search for the pictures on line to compare the originals to your choice of colours.
