In Class 3 today, our main activity was swimming. It was our first swimming lesson in a long time, but the children remembered how to do “crab” and “crocodile.” The swimming lessons have become more challenging in the second term, but the children are doing their best and learning a lot. It was also exciting to see some of the children choosing to read a book about creatures that live under the sea during Discovery Time. Yesterday’s trip to the Otaru Aquarium seems to have sparked an interest in marine biology! For story book time, Class 3 was introduced to the story for Hyogen Festival through puppets. Some of the children also enjoyed playing with the puppets and imitating the story during Discovery time.
