Year 5 Zen GardensBack
This term, as part of our topic on Japan, we have been learning about the art of Zen gardens. We learnt that the Japanese rock garden or "dry landscape" garden, are often called zen gardens. We decided to create our own miniature landscapes by carefully arranging different materials including: rocks, water features, moss, mini trees, sand, gravel, pulses.
Some of us even added our own mini water features and used mini rake to add patterns to our gardens. It was great fun designing and making the gardens and the children did an incredible job!
