    Today Class 7 had a very fun and eventful day! In the morning we took the bus to Noshi Park and had LOTS of fun sliding down the big hill together and making snow angels. After we returned to the kindergarten we were met by an ogre! All of the Intermediate and Senior children did a great job frightening it away by throwing their beans at it! We had lots and lots of fun today. Have a great weekend everyone and see you all on Monday.

    Today was a lot of fun in Class 5. We first joined the rest of the Intermediate classes outside in the park so that we could all participate in the Snowtopia relay race together! Everyone tried their best and ran as fast as they could in the snow. We also practiced our arts and crafts skills today, by adding detail to our painted snowmen, with crayon. Class 5 always enjoys expressing themselves through art! Finally, today’s lunch was very delicious, and there was even a super special dessert for the children to enjoy. Well done today Class 5, see you tomorrow!

    Today in Elephant Class we had a fire drill. The children learned about how to safely exit the school in the event of a fire and we practiced one time. Everyone did such a good job following the rules and going safely. After that we pretended to throw beans at ogres and said “Go away!” The children got to take home their handmade ogre masks and we hope they can wear them at home for Sestubun. Well done everyone!

    Bear Class had so much fun today on the first day of Feburary. We started the day with play time with children only. Their parents waited while they got comfortable playing together. Bear Class is a parent and child class but since the children are almost Juniors, today was good practice for them. We made ogre masks when parents returned. The children could color their own mask and throw balls at big ogres while saying “go away!” Everyone had so much fun today!

  • 2023.01.30January’s Birthday Party

    今日は、1月生まれのBirthday Partyでした。ピアノの演奏とみんなの手拍子に合わせて入場してきたお子さま達は、少し緊張していたりニコニコ笑顔だったりと様々な様子でした。質問タイムでは、自分の名前を大きな声で言ったり、何歳になったのか、自分の年齢の数を指でつくったりして元気いっぱいに答えていました。全園児の手拍子に合わせて、誕生日一人ひとりの名前を呼びながらBirthday songを歌い終わると、最後はクラスの友達からBirthday presentを受け取り、とても嬉しそうな表情を浮かべていました。そして、今月の先生達からのプレセントは、‟魔法の電子レンジ”というパネルシアター。空っぽのお皿を魔法の電子レンジに入れて歌を歌うと、不思議なことに中からオムライスやお寿司など、美味しそうなごちそうが出てくるというストーリーで、たくさんのごちそうが現れる度に、「え~!?すごい!」や、「なんでだろう?」という声がたくさん聞こえてきました。最後には、大きなお皿にのったデコレーションケーキが出てきて、みんなで1月生まれのお友達のお祝いをしました。お子さま達はパネルシアターが終わった後も、劇中の歌を口ずさみ、余韻を楽しんでいましたよ。1月生まれのお友達、Happy Birthday!
  • 2023.01.27English Recital Contest

    Today was the English Recital Contest. Over the year the children have been enjoying different nursery rhymes. During the Winter Vacation a lot of children submitted entries to the contest and the winners were announced today. First of all, we reviewed the nursery rhymes as a Kindergarten. Next the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners came to the front to receive their certificates. The Gold prize winner from each grade presented their recital in front of their friends on the microphone. Although they were a little nervous each child could use a nice voice. Once again I would like to extend a warm thank you to all the parents who supported their children in entering the contest. Congratulations to all the winners and participants and let’s have a lot of fun in next years contest!

    In Class 3 today, we were able to accomplish many things indoors because of the bad weather. Everyone had so much fun! After the Morning Meeting and ECT, we had our first English Writing in the third term. Today, we learned how to write the letter “Ii.” Most of the children are able to confidently complete their writing sheets by themselves now after lots of practice in the second term. The children had fun using their mommy fingers to “write” the letter in the air. After English Writing, we started making some things for the Shopping Day with Elephant Class in February. Today, we made many video games for our “Video Game Shop.” The children enjoyed coloring their favorite characters and decorating the video games with colorful stickers.

    Everyone had lots of fun today in Class 2. All the children are doing a great job learning to put on and take off their snow wear by themselves. After morning Discovery Time we went downstairs to the pool for our swimming lesson. Today was the first day that we got changed in the changing room by the pool, and all of Class 2 could put their clothes aways nicely. After a great time splashing around and finally getting changed, we went back to the classroom and got ready for lunch. Today was World Lunch from India, and everyone enjoyed a yummy curry. Namaste! After lunch it was time for a story and Goodbye Meeting. The day was over so quickly, but we will see everyone again tomorrow! See you!
