皆で鬼ごっこをしていると、誰かが「氷!」と言い始めると…鬼ごっこから氷鬼になりました(笑)
先生が鬼になって子ども達を追い掛けますが、一人捕まえてもう一人を追い掛けていると、あっと言う間にさっき捕まえた子が他の子にタッチされて氷から戻って逃げていました♪子ども達の足の速さには先生もなかなか敵いません♪

たっくさん走ったので喉がカラカラ~お部屋に戻った後のお茶の一杯を皆とても美味しそうに飲んでいました♪

This afternoon, everyone had a fantastic time with Ryusaku-sensei making Swing Animals!! First, everyone chose the animal (or animals) they wanted to make, what part of the animal would swing from the straw structure and then drew them. After, we cut them out and worked out how many straws we would need in order for the characters made to be able to swing freely. The last two steps involved taping the straws together and taping the animals to the swing structure.

Ryusaku

This afternoon, we had a birthday party for four children (two other children had birthdays this month, but unfortunately couldn't be here today).
Today's festivities began with introductions, as the birthday students gave their names and ages. It was quickly followed by everyone singing, "Happy Birthday". After that beautiful rendition, we had a round of question time; the guests of honour answering questions given by the audience. Everyone gave some very interesting and a couple of surprising answers.

Next came a game of Pictionary led by Akiko-sensei and Ryusaku-sensei. The game involves one person drawing a picture on the whiteboard of a picture card they have received. Then, everyone else are tasked with guessing what they have drawn a picture of. The entire school gave it their best in trying to get the correct answer!
d0148342_17305293.jpg
Afterward, Encho-sensei read a funny traditional Japanese folktale about farting. Everyone laughed their heads off!
Soon after, she was given a great surprise as everyone sang and dance to, "Paprika" (a song written by Yonezu as part of the NHK 2020 Song Project leading up to the Tokyo Olympics).

The 0 and 1 year olds enjoyed an outing to Water Park this morning as their playtime was split into half with regular playtime and Water Play. During regular play, the children went looking for different kinds of sticks and leaves, were chased around by the teachers and identified many varieties of ants. Afterwards, we changed to Water Play and the students collected the tiny toy fish, dropped the water balloons into the water, watched in delight as the wind-up turtle swam around the pool and tried to avoid being squirted with water! Despite the rather cool weather brought by the overcast weather, everyone had a great time!

The 2 year olds and Butterfly Class on the other hand, went to Green Park. As usual, they made good use of the water pistols and buckets, but (as mentioned earlier) since it was a fairly cool and overcast morning, we tried to avoid splashing each other to avoid catching a cold.

午後のCookingでは自分のお気に入りのエプロンと三角巾をつけて、2歳児とバタフライクラスと一緒に「タルタルソースのハンバーガー」を作りました♪
ゆで卵とキュウリなどを包丁を使って「トントントン」とみじん切りにしマヨネーズであえてタルタルソースの出来上がり☆大きなハンバーガーのパンにチキンとレタスをはさんで「タルタルソースのハンバーガー」の完成~!どこから食べようか悩んでしまう子ども達もいましたが、大きな口をあけてもぐもぐ食べていました!!
「いつも食べてるハンバーガーより大きい~」「美味しいな~」と言いながらたくさん食べおかわりもしてお腹いっぱい!!

Pigs 'n' Blankets!

This afternoon Caterpillar class had some free play time. They started with a Japanese game 'Handkerchief Pickup', in which the children all sit in a circle whilst one child walks slowly around the outside of the circle. They then sneakily drop a handkerchief behind someone, this person then chases the one who dropped the Handkerchief! It's similar to the English game 'Duck, Duck, Goose'. The children then had free play, time to explore all the sights and sounds around them and learn to play together!

Butterfly class had their English Art Lesson, after a month of learning about different animals it seemed fitting to end the month with an animal craft, and what better animals to choose than a cute, pink piggy? We started by taking a pink, wooden spoon and wrapping a pink pipe cleaner around the outside, leaving the two ends sticking out, forming piggy arms. We then used glue to attach the ears, nose and eyes. Each child had the chance to choose their favourite pair of eyes from our varied googly eye box, which resulted in each piggy being as unique as the child who made it! After making our piggies we had great fun using them as toys and puppets to play with our friends.

今日も日差しが強く、暑い日でしたね!


午前中は両クラス合同でウォーターパークへ行きました☆

日差しが強かったので日陰で休みながら、ぽっくりや追いかけっこ、お店屋さんごっこをしながら遊びました。

お部屋に戻って来て、次は音楽遊びの時間です!

今日はMariko先生がカリンバという面白い楽器を持って来てくれました。

丸い実でできていて、弦のようなものがあり、音はキラキラとしてとても涼しそうでした。

弦を見て、「なんで長いのと短いものがあるの~?」と質問するお友達もいました。

「長い方が低い音で、短い方が高い音が出るんだよ~。」と教えてもらうと驚いていました。


その他にも「アブラハムの子」の歌をみんなで踊りながら歌いました♪

「みぎ~て!ひだ~りて!みぎ~あし!・・・」と、どんどん揺らす場所が増えていくと子ども達の元気も増して、とても楽しかったです 

またみんなでたくさん踊りたいと思います☆

朝は雨が降っていましたが、皆が水遊びに行く頃にはすっかり日がでていいお天気になりましたね✨

両クラスともに水遊びをしました♪
キャタピラーさんは皆で水風船を使って遊びぷにぷにした感触を楽しんでいました(^^)/
水が飛んでくると「あー!!」と声を出していたり、自分でおもちゃを持って見たりゆったりと楽しんでいました(*´ω`*)


バタフライさんと2歳じさんはグリーンパークで遊びました!
昨日は出来なかった分もやりたい!!ということで、バケツの水を周りに撒いたり、水鉄砲でお友達や先生を狙って大はしゃぎでした♪
友達同士協力をして水をかけたり、逃げたりと知恵を使った戦いが繰り広げられていましたよ(^^♪
最後の方にはひなたぼっこをしながら「あったかい~」「まだまだ水遊びしたい!!」と楽しそうに話していました♪

This afternoon Caterpillar class had their English lesson, after a month of learning different colours, it was time for a review lesson. We started with a quick game of 'Simon Says', playfully testing the kids' ability to differentiate between following instructions and copying body language. After this brief warm up we practiced identifying eight of our favourite colours, along with matching gestures we've been learning along with them. Next we encountered two new colours, black and white, each with their own gesture. After learning the new colours we played a game in which all of the children close their eyes, and while their eyes are closed on colour is removed from the whiteboard, it's then up to our cunning detectives to figure out which colour is missing. After this we played another game, involving the children identifying colours based simply on seeing their matching gestures. We ended the lessn with a rendition of 'I can Sing a Rainbow'.

Meanwhile Butterfly class were practicing a different language a little closer to home, their Japanese lesson involved practicing writing their names in Hiragana. The older children who are already familiar with writing their names did so with ease, but the younger children were provided with tracing sheets so they could first trace their name, and then copy themselves. It still amazes me how able the children are to learn two languages at the same time at such a young age.

キャタピラーのお部屋に残った0歳児さん、1歳児さんは土曜日にお友達が作ったTipiテントを使わせてもらい、お家ごっこをしました!
自分達が入るだけではなく、動物のおもちゃも招待しなんだかパーティーのよう(#^^#)
d0148342_12281324.jpg
テントの周りは大きなブロックで塀を作りました!
が、0歳児さんはつかまろうとして倒してしまうことも…
それでもみんな仲良く楽しくテントでお家ごっこをしていました♪

This afternoon Caterpillar class had free play time, this is a time in which they can explore freely in a safe and stimulating environment. The multitude of sensory, puzzle and role play toys along with the childrens' boundless imagination opens up a world of possibilities, and the children are naturally eager to explore them. They may choose to play together with friends, learning valuable lessons about rules and social skills along the way, whilst others may opt for solo or parallel play, building and creating or simply taking in sensory information.

Meanwhile, Butterfly class had a Maths lesson, focused on numbers 0-12 (speaking and listening in Japanese, but reading and writing in Arabic numerals, the most commonly used number system worldwide). The lesson started with reading all of the numbers from 0-12. Then the numbers were scattered around the room, and each child tried to find the number stated by the teacher. After the game the class sat down to each individually practice writing the Arabic numerals from 0-12.

Yayoi

This afternoon was a bit mysterious at first, as Madoka-sensei had everyone roll up very large pieces of newspaper to make long poles. Yayoi-sensei then helped everyone tear up pieces of newspaper and color them in with crayon. Everyone was quite excited as no one was sure what we were going to make!!
d0148342_16511689.jpg
Soon after, we put all of the poles together to make a kind of rounded pyramid, wrapped them in large pieces of newspaper and finally, attached the colored pieces of newspaper all over it.

Ryusaku


oon Caterpillar class were making some beautiful fans and hats to keep themselves cool during the hot summer months that are fast approaching on the horizon. They started with a fan or a hat cut from some coloured card and then decorated it by dipping their fingers in coloured paint and pressing their fingers onto the fans/hats. This gives each piece it's own personal touch! The children enjoyed the sensory play aspect of touching and feeling the paint, choosing and talking about the different colours and creating something one-of-a-kind just for them!

Butterfly class had their last ABC lesson of the month, to commemorate the occasion we had a fun-filled lesson recapping and reviewing the month's content. This included words starting with the consonants c ,g ,q ,l ,v ,y ,x ,w and z. We started the lesson by singing the popular Alphabet song whilst pointing to each of the letters on a special card, we then reviewed one word starting with each of the letters that we covered in June. As we reviewed them sneaky Jordan Sensei was hiding the pictures all around the classroom! Luckily the clever children jumped at the chance to solve the riddle and bring back all of the missing pictures. Afterwards we played another game in which the children were shown an image and they would then think about what letter of the alphabet the word starts with and write it on the board. Now that we have studied every letter of the alphabet individually, next phonics lesson we will start to learn about how letters come together to form words.

The latter section of today's proceedings brought good tidings in the form of a Science Lesson at Caterpillar Class with Kozue-sensei.
The students started off with a game of Daruma-san ga koronda (だるまさんが転んだ - aka Red Light, Green Light).
Next, everyone got a chance to take a look at the class' Okura plants and observe their growth since planting them as seeds.
d0148342_16471812.jpg
Finally, the children used the giant plastic lego-style blocks from Butterfly Class in an effort to build the highest towers possible. All the kids were quite amazed at how high they were able to stack said blocks since the towers became taller than that of themselves!
