春はもうすぐそこ♪

今日はキャタピラーさんは昭和記念公園にお散歩に行きました♪
最近はクラスみんなで一緒にお散歩に行く機会が少なかったので、
みんなとっても嬉しそうでした110.png
芝生の上をコロコロと転げ回ってみたり、
木の枝でお料理をして「ケーキ焼けましたよー!クリームもありまーす」とパティシエになってみたり
つぼみを見つけて不思議そうに見ている子もいました178.png

This afternoon Butterfly class had an English lesson. We continued our work on prepositions, which everyone thoroughly enjoys! We recapped the prepositions we have learnt, in, on, under, in front of, behind, next to, between, as a class before we split into two teams. The children decided they wanted to be Team Elsa and Team Wolf 101.png One person from each team took a toy they liked and placed it somewhere around the classroom, with an instruction that it must be using a preposition that the teacher had said. So if I had said 'under', they could take any toy and place it under the table, a chair or a box. The children all had fun choosing their favourite toy and then their team mates would form a sentence about their toy, such as 'the pig is under the table'.

Caterpillar class had an Art lesson, whereby they made a craft in preparation for Doll's Festival 171.png They all made a prince and a princess by using a stamp made of cotton buds. It created a beautiful pattern and just goes to show that creativity can flow from anything. All of the children have been enjoying singing a song ready for Doll's Festival and are looking forward to our upcoming event 110.png

A Magical Musical Day

今日もお天気がよく気持ちがよかったですが、風が冷たくまだまだマフラーが手放せないですね☆            今日はみんな大好きな音楽遊びがあり、歌詞も手話も覚えた「小さな世界」をみんなで歌ったりMariko先生が持って来てくれた絵本を見ました♪絵本を読むときはみんな真剣な表情でじっと見ていました♪ 音楽遊びでは先生たちとゆったりとした雰囲気で歌ったり手遊びをするので、子ども達はとっても嬉しそうです☆                        音楽遊びが終わるとランチスタート!!お魚のおかずの和食メニューだったので「おかわりください」とたくさん食べてくれました♪

This afternoon Caterpillar class had their monthly English Art Lesson. To help to reinforce our transport vocabulary that we're spending this month studying in English Lessons, today we made some cute little cars and planes! For the planes the 0 year olds glued on the windows and the propellers, before making two handprints to make the wings! The 1 & 2 year old groups joined together to make some funky cars, gluing tissue paper, white rectangle windows, big black circle wheels and a black bumper to their very cool vehicles! Some kids got a bit creative with the placement of the windows and wheels, giving their cars a distinct look.

Meanwhile Butterfly class made some special crafts for a certain special someone, by gluing some different patterned paper onto some folded card so that they could add some drawings and messages inside!

お散歩大好き!!

今日はキャタピラーさんもバタフライさんも昭和記念公園へお散歩に行ってきました♪
まずはキャタピラーさん!
2歳児さんがバタフライさんと一緒に活動する日でいなかったので、0・1歳児さんだけののんびり散歩のはじまり~(#^^#)
むっくりくまさんをすると、いつもは2歳児さんにリードしてもらっているみんなでしたが、きちんとルールを理解して逃げたりつかまったりを楽しむことができました♪
自然の中の探索では「こんなもの見つけたよ!」と色々な物を見せてくれました。

バタフライさんは2歳児さんと一緒にPEをしました!
最初は不安そうだった2歳児さんもやさしいお兄さんお姉さんのおかげでとたんに笑顔に(^-^)
どーんじゃんけんぽんをしたりボールを使ったゲームなど、大人数で大盛り上がりでした♪
帰りはみんなでしりとりをして帰りました♪

This afternoon Butterfly class had an English lesson. We carried on from where we left off with prepositions (in, on, under, behind) and added some more (between, next to, in front of). The older children were particularly fast at remembering the prepositions we had previously learnt and putting them correctly into full sentences (the ball is in the box, the baby bear is next to the table). Each child took their favourite toy from the classroom and hide it around the room. Before we found out where the toy was, the entire class would ask, where is it? To which, the child would reply using a full sentence containing a preposition (the car is in the pocket, the ball is under the table). We all had fun revising the prepositions we had previously learnt (my face is between my hands) as well as learning some more which we quickly put into practice.

Whilst Butterfly class had their English lesson, Caterpillar class were letting their musical talents out in a Rhythmics lesson. The class explored the room whilst listening to some musics to get themselves moving. Then they sang a song based on Setsubun and the Oni. To end the class, the teacher gave everyone a maraca to shake whilst we learnt a new song. All the children enjoyed this very much, shaking to make new sounds.

晴れ~☀

今日は暖かくなるという予報でしたが、少し肌寒かったですね。
子ども達は「今日のお天気は晴れ~☀」
と言っていましたが午前中は曇り空でした😢

キャタピラークラスは午前中、昭和記念公園に行きました。
まずはみんなで鬼ごっこをしました!
今日は少し変わったルールで、鬼になった人はお尻にタッチするというものでした☆
いつものように肩や背中にタッチをするのとは違い、鬼になったお友達はとても難しそうでした。
逃げる方もお尻を抑えながら走ったりしていてとても面白かったです😊
たくさん走ったので体が温まりました♪
その後は枝をたくさん集めたり、ボールを蹴ったりとそれぞれ好きな遊びを楽しみました☆
晴れ~☀_d0148342_16343125.jpg

バタフライクラスはMath lessonがありました。
今日は足し算を学びました。
2+□=5
などをフルーツのブロックを使いながら解きました。
文字だけだと「う~ん。」と考えていた子どもも、
それを使うと「なるほどっ!」と言って納得しているようでした。
年長さんは□+□=6
のように少し難しいものにも挑戦しました。
小学生に向けて色々な物に挑戦して頑張っています。
問題が解けた時はとても嬉しいですよね♪

This afternoon Caterpillar class put their spacial-reasoning skills to the test with some jigsaw puzzles. The number of pieces would vary depending on the size or age of the group, so they all had a suitable challenge to face. Working in a group also presents an excellent opportunity to practice using communication and teamwork!

Meanwhile, Butterfly class went outside for their Traditional Japanese Play lesson, everyone was very excited to be having a lesson outside under the monorail. The children played a game which involved running around and trying to touch people as they run away. Any excuse to chase each other is welcomed whole heartedly by this lot, I assure you!

Today we went to the park to have a good run around. The children choose one person to be the monster and they would chase the others until they caught someone who could be the monster next. It was nice and warm outside so we got to experience the Spring weather whilst having fun with our friends. We then went for an explore around the park and found some hills we couldn`t resist rolling down 101.png Saturday is a great day for Caterpillar and Butterfly class children to integrate together, which was evident today in the older children helping the younger children. Once we made our way back, we had an amazing culinary surprise waiting! The children got to make Chocolate Chip Cookies in honor of Valentine`s Day yesterday. They were all so excited and couldn`t wait to start 162.png

今日の午後は身近な物を使ってビーズを作り、キーホルダーを作りました♪
その身近な物というのは、皆もよく使うペットボトルです(^-^)
ペットボトルにペンで自由に絵を描きました!星やハート等色々な模様を描き「かわいい~」「きれい~」と言っていました!
そのペットボトルを小さく切ってオーブンに入れました!!
少し待ってから、ペットボトルが出てくるとなんとクルクル丸まって綺麗なビーズになっていました✨

皆で紐に通してキーホルダ―を作りました!
それぞれリュックにつけてとても嬉しそうにしていました♪
