土曜日のSport Dayにお越し下さった保護者のみなさま、ありがとうございました102.png
疲れが出て欠席の子もたくさんいるかな…?と思っていましたが、
昨日ゆっくり体を休めることができたようで、みんな元気に登園してきてくれました☆

Caterpillarさんは久しぶりに昭和記念公園までお散歩に行きました!
1,2歳児さんはちょっぴり長い距離を自分の足で歩くことができました。
公園では「むっくりくまさん」をしました。
振り付きで上手にお歌を歌った後は、
くまさんに食べられないように一生懸命逃げ回っていました128.png

Butterflyさんは、English Lessonをしました。
2か月前には「a」「e」「i」の音を練習しましたが、
今日は「u」「o」も新たに加わって、全ての音を覚えました!
先生が「Dog」など単語を言い、子ども達がどの音か考えて当てるゲームもしました!
音をきいて当てるなんてみんなとってもかっこいい173.png
その後はワークシートを使って文字を書く練習をしました110.png

This afternoon Caterpillar class had some free play time, it's always interesting to see which toys and activities the children will be drawn towards on any given day. Today one of the children opened up a ramen shop to serve the rest of the class, many of the girls wanted to relive Sports Day's 'Mickey Mouse Club March' dance by dressing up with bows and skirts and going through the routine. When asked what their favourite part of Sports Day was, they all said that it was the dance! Some other children played with animals, trying to think about how different animals behave to inform their playing.

Meanwhile in Butterfly Class, we had Surprise Art. Today's lesson involved a huge sheet of paper; it took the whole class to work together to unfold it and it almost covered the entire classroom floor! After unfolding it and playing under it like it was a parachute, the children each took it in turns to lie down on the floor, have their friend draw around them, and then work in pairs to cut out the silhouette. The children found it very exciting to see themselves in paper form and had a great time working together to cut the pieces out!

Happy Sports Day!!!

Today was a very special day here at Suku Suku World, we held our own Sports Day event at Green Park. The children have been preparing for the event a lot recently and it was fantastic to see everyone playing games, enjoying the performances and having fun together. We started the day with the Opening Ceremony, the oldest members of Butterfly class made an English speech to commence the event. After that we all warmed up with a dance and some stretches before marching off, excited about the day ahead and eager to see which team would emerge victorious.
d0148342_14212983.jpg
d0148342_14205813.jpg
Next came Butterfly class' Cheerleading performance, a dance with pompoms set to pumping music encouraging everyone to have a 'Good Time', and indeed a good time was had by all. It was very impressive to see all of the children in perfect sync with each other remembering and performing a full routine together, and the best part was just how much they enjoyed it. My personal favourite part is when they all came together for a can-can type dance.
d0148342_14252092.jpg
d0148342_14252676.jpg
The next event was the Caterpillar race, the children were split into different age categories and it was a straightforward sprint for the finish line. Some of the children needed some encouragement to keep on going but most of them understood the game and tried to make it to the end as fast as they could. There were some very close calls in this race!

After Butterfly's race event was Caterpillar class' dance routine, set to 'Mickey Mouse Club March'. This absolutely adorable display had all of the children dressed as different cute characters, first parading out and waving 'Hello!' to all of their smiling fans, and then giving us a wonderful performance. It was very impressive to see such young children performing their dance routine so well, and it was perhaps the cutest thing I've ever seen.
d0148342_14502099.jpg
Next up was another Caterpillar class event, the 'Baby Raising Relay'. This race would test the children's parental intuitions against each other, as they race to collect milk bottles, a diaper and, of course, the baby, put them all in the pram and dart to the finish line. They start by being told how many bottles to put in the bag, then cross the balance beams, pick up the baby, walk around the cones, pick up a diaper of a certain colour (as stated by the teacher), stick it all in the pram and race to the finish line! The kids had a lot of fun with this event and it was great fun to watch, too!

Next up, Tug-of-War! This simple game of brute force pitted one half of Butterfly class against the other, seeing which team could pull the rope the hardest. Bear team managed to get 2 points in a row, but then Bunny team started to claw it back with a point, only for Bear team to steal the victory with their third and final point.
d0148342_14404813.jpg
We then held the Caterpillar class parent's game. This game involved the parents taking on the role of mother Kangaroo and the children being the baby. They started by each dressing up accordingly, then jumping through the hula hoops, the children would then grab a delicious apple, and finally the parent would lift them up and hop to the finish line! This game became surprisingly intense with parents getting very competitive and jumping very fast, but many of them got stumped and lost precious time trying to put on the costume at the start. All-in-all everyone had a lot of fun together with their children.

Next came the Butterfly parents' game. This game involved dancing around to the music, waiting for it to stop, and then finding a circle and trying to touch the floor a certain amount of times together with their child. The game started off relatively simple, with numbers like 3 and 5 simply involving lifting up a foot or putting down a hand. But as numbers like 2 and 6 came in the game got considerably more difficult. Eventually it got to the point where numbers like 8 and 1 were being played, meaning the parents had to pick up their children and stand on one foot! Because the rules also dictate that you must hold the pose for 5 seconds, many parent/child combinations couldn't quite managed to stay upright the whole time. The team who had the less falling was then deemed the winners!

Then, after a lunch break, we opened the second half of the event with a Cheer Battle! A chance for each team to show who was the loudest! We all made as much noise as we could, and then danced to a song whilst seeing who could sing the loudest.
d0148342_14524954.jpg
We then saw a skillful gymnastics routine from Butterfly class, holding poses for considerable lengths of time, memorising and executing yet another lengthy routine and even making a human pyramid in an impressive grand finale!
d0148342_14544557.jpg
d0148342_14562537.jpg
Next up was Butterfly Class' relay race, each team would have one member run around the bandstand and then pass the baton to the next runner. This event was very fast paced and an excellent display of sheer speed from every member of each team. The race was so close all the way through that I'm sure everyone was on the edge of their seats!
d0148342_14585257.jpg
Our last game involved all of the children and parents coming together to throw as many balls into the baskets being held by Jordan Sensei and Jim Sensei as they possibly could. Being the final game the stakes were high and everyone performed exceedingly well, each of the buckets had over 80 balls inside! But a winner was victorious nevertheless.

Finally, we ended the event with our closing ceremony. Our oldest students made their English closing speech, the winning team was announced (Go Bear Team!) and the trophy handed out. We warmed down with some stretches and then it was time to say goodbye!
d0148342_15023232.jpg
d0148342_15030320.jpg
Thank you everyone for coming! I hope you had as much fun as we did, see you next time!

This afternoon, we had a Birthday Party for a particular boy who had just turned 1 years olds with Madoka-sensei, Kozue-sensei and Naho-sensei. We started off by asking the birthday boy some questions. Then, watched a play about two characters named Kuri and Kura who were invited to the Birthday Party at Suku Suku World. The two characters went on to ask the audience help them make a cake. Lastly, Encho-sensei kindly read a little bit scary story to us in anticipation of Halloween.

The Big Day is Nearly Here!

This morning Butterfly and Caterpillar class went to Green Park together to enjoy a run through of some of the activities coming up on Saturday's big Sports Day event! Caterpillar class practiced the adorable Mickey Mouse Club March, and Butterfly class the flashy Cheerleading routine. We heard the opening and closing speeches from our oldest students and held a relay race for butterfly class, and a sweet baby raising race in which Caterpillar's 2 year olds race to pick up milk bottles, diapers and a baby and put them all in the pram to make their way home to the finish line. We're all very excited to see which team will be victorious on Saturday!

午後、バタフライさんと2歳児さんはCookingでした!
毎回エプロンや三角巾を付けて、お料理をするのを楽しみにしています。
今日は韓国のおやつ「ホットク」をつくりました♪
まずハムやチーズを切ります!そして小麦粉と白玉粉を混ぜてこねて、丸~い形にして焼きます☆
ハムは薄いので優しい力でも切ることが出来ました(^O^)
こねるのは手に生地がついて少し難しいですが、感触を楽しんでいました✨
段々といい香りがしてきて、早く食べたくなってしまう子どももちらほら・・・♪

今日はあんこが入った物も食べました。
甘いホットクも、しょっぱいホットクもどちらも美味しかったようです!
みんなの幸せそうな顔が見られました☆

悔しい思いをしない為にも、ルールを楽しく学びました☆
その後は背中にハンカチを乗せて、ハイハイレースをしました✨
もう歩けるようになったお友達も、あの頃を思い出して頑張っていました♡
とても可愛かったです♡
その後は、お気に入りのおもちゃで自由に遊んで過ごしました♡

今日も朝から太陽が顔を出し、気持ちのいいお天気になりましたね♪今日はMusic lessonが始まる前に両クラスともお外に行き、キャタピラークラスはかけっこの練習とミッキーダンスを踊りました!!今週の土曜日にいよいよ本番!ということもあり、かけっこの練習ではゴールテープの先まで走ってゴールすることを先生と一緒にやってみました♪子ども達もわかっているようですが、なかなかゴールテープの先にいけずストップ・・・しかし1番早くゴールしたい気持ちが強いので本番はぜひ楽しみにしていてください☆

Music LeesonではMariko先生の綺麗な鉄琴の音色に合わせて、歌を歌ったり「さんぽ」の歌に合わせてみんなで手を繋いでお散歩をしました!
とくに年長さんは小さい赤ちゃんに興味があるようで後ろから抱きしめてくれたりとなりで一緒に歌を歌って、お互いにとても嬉しそうにニコニコと笑っていて先生たちも微笑ましい気持ちになりました♪

This afternoon, Butterfly Class used the tiny cups they ptainted black, orange and green yesterday to make some super scary (but actually kinda cute) monsters. They made spiders, zombies and jack-o-lanters using pipe-cleaners (black for the spiders' legs and green for the jack-o-lanterns' stalks and zombies' arms), googly eyes and felt markers to make mouths. Nencho-san cut up their legs using scissors and everyone used bond glue to put everything together. Much creativity was used and much happiness ensued!

今日は少しだけ可愛らしかった子ども同士の様子を紹介したいと思います♪
朝の合同時間、食べ物のオモチャを入れている箱を縦てその後ろに絵本を置く子ども達…
そしてその前でBoxを椅子のようにして座っています…
そしてブロックをステッキのようにして「えいっ」と言って、本のように振っています。
「何しているの?」と聞くと、「テレビ観てるんだよー」と(笑)
お家でソファーに座ってリモコンをこんな風に使っているのですかね?(#^^#)
バタフライさんもキャタピラーさんもテレビごっこを楽しんでいました!

This afternoon Caterpillar class had their weekly English lesson. Today was the final lesson of the month, so we took the opportunity to review the monthly topic, animals. We started by recalling the different animals and singing a song about the sounds they make and where they live. Then we each tried to guess the names of the different animals. After that we started a listening game, today's game involved listening to different animal sounds and trying to identify which animal made the sound. Some of the sounds were easy to guess whilst others, such as monkeys and chickens, proved more difficult. Nevertheless, eventually all of the animals were correctly identified and we all celebrated together!

Meanwhile Butterfly class were practicing some of their sports day routines, including gymnastics and cheerleading. Now that the whole class can confidently and correctly perform each of the routines we are now focused on the finishing touches, namely remembering to smile! Many of the children perform the routines beautifully but forget to smile and sometimes even look a little angry, but after today all of the children are more aware of using their face to express positive emotions during dance and gymnastics routines.

This morning our Saturday class went outside to play with hoops. We played a variety of games including seeing who could roll them the farthest, a game where the teacher says a colour and the kids have to jump in that coloured circle before they get eaten by the shark and a game I grew up calling 'Tiggy Scarecrow', where when one player touches another they have to stand still until a friend touches them again. Afterwards we came back inside to play with ballons, after a game of volleyball (or should that be volleyballoon?) and a race where each team has to make it to the other side of the room whilst keeping the balloon on a newspaper. Playing competitive team games is a great opportunity for the children to develop their teamwork as well as getting used to winning and losing.

午後はバタフライさんチームとキャタピラーさんチームで謎解きゲームをしました!
部屋中に隠れているひらがなを探し集め、並べてみると、
みんなが大好きな本の名前になりました。
その本を開くと中には金色の封筒があり、さらなるミッションが……???

お友達と協力して様々なミッションをクリアすると、最後にはメダルを発見113.png
ひとつひとつクリアするたびに「ねえ、先生、わかった!!!」と教えてくれる子も。
小さなお友達も、年長さんも、みんな大興奮で楽しんでくれました♪

This morning was a rather busy one as both Caterpillar and Butterfly classes ventured over to Green Park to practice certain events for Sports Day. Those events were: Butterfly's Cheerleading, Butterfly's Coordinated Group Gymnastics, Caterpillar's Mickey Mouse Club March, The Bunny Team vs. Bear Team Cheering Contest and the Ball Toss Game.
d0148342_13493800.jpg
Everyone's performance has improved dramatically and we are all very impressed. Today was the first time practicing the Ball Toss Game and Jim-sensei and Jordan-sensei were a little bit scared with everyone throwing balls at them!
d0148342_13494536.jpg
We look forward to seeing you on Sports Day!

午後はキャタピラーさんはEnglish Lessonの時間にオバケやコウモリを作りました!
来月にはハロウィンも近づいてきています♪いつもは「オバケ…?こわい…」とうるうるいう事もあるキャタピラーさんでしたが、今日のオバケづくりには笑顔いっぱいで好きなように目を貼ったり、口を付けたりと自分だけのオバケやコウモリを作りました!これならおばけなんてこわくないさ~♪という気持ちでいっぱい楽しんで時間でした♪

まずはド、ド、ド~♪とひとつづつ音を奏でていきます♪一人で弾くとただの一音ですが、皆で合わせて弾くと一音でも厳かに、皆の弾いている気持ちがたくさんこもってお部屋の中は題名のない演奏会になりました♪
ピアニカの綺麗な音色にいつまでも触っていたいと思うバタフライさん達でした♪

トンボのめがね♪

秋らしい気温になりだいぶ過ごしやすくなりましたね♪キャタピラークラスは午前中にグリーンパークまで行くとトンボがたくさん跳んでいて思わず、毎日歌っている「トンボのめがね」の歌を口ずさんでいるお友達がいました♪                                       キャタピラークラスでもスポーツデイの練習が本格的になり、本番と同じ場所で踊り、とくに2歳児は自信をもって堂々と踊れるように先生と一緒に練習をしました☆0歳児さんもミッキーマウスの曲に合わせて手を叩くタイミングを覚え、先生が言わなくても自然に踊っていて先生たちも驚きました☆またかけっこの練習ではまだゴールテープの手前で止まってしまったり、よーいドンの合図の前に飛び出してしまう子もいましたが、「一番になる~」と一生懸命走っていました!

This afternoon Butterfly class went to green park to play outside and practice their aerobics routine for Sports Day. We started with a monster game. Jordan Sensei would sing 'I am a monster, I am hungry, I want to eat....' and then would chase anyone with a certain coloured clothing, age, gender, or specific children. We had so much fun running around that the children wanted to try being the monster, so they would sing the song and then choose who to chase. After enjoying playing in the sun we had a breif aerobics rehearsal before coming back to SukuSuku World.

お外で遊べた~?

今日は昨日とはうって変わって、肌寒い1日となりましたね。
外では長袖を着ている方も居ましたね☂

午前中、キャタピラーさんはウォーターパークへ行きました。
久々にぽっくりを使って、体を動かしました☆
大きな葉っぱを見つけたお友達は、「いらっしゃいませ~!」
と言ってお店屋さんごっこをしていました♪

今日もSports Dayの練習をしようと思っている頃、ちょうど雨が降ってきてしまいました(>_<)
急いでお部屋へ帰ることになってしまいました😢💦
少しだけでしたがお外へ出ることができて良かったです。
バタフライさんもキャタピラーさんと時間差でお外へ出る予定でしたが、雨が強くなってしまい出ることができませんでした。


その後はみんなで音楽遊びをしました♪
Mariko先生とタンバリンを叩いてご挨拶をしました。
そして今日は、「とんぼのめがね」のお歌を手話を交えて歌いました。
キャタピラークラスは今月の歌としても歌っているので、大きな声を出すことができました✨
手話は難しいですが、わかりやすく先生が教えて下さったのでみんな真剣に覚えようとしていました☆
また、今日はMariko先生がピアニカで色々な曲を演奏してくれました☆
ピアノと違って鍵盤が少ないのに、色々な音を奏でていて、みんなうっとり❁
聴き入っていました♡
パプリカも弾いてくださり、みんな大喜びでした!

Caterpillar Class had Body Measurement this afternoon and everyone were amazed at how much bigger/taller they had become! Afterward, everyone enjoyed free time and spent it building all manner of interesting contraptions. Last of all, we practiced the Mickey Mouse Club March. The 2 year olds in particular have become more proficient at their parts of the dance, since they spent additional time practicing. Sports Day is drawing nearer and nearer!

Butterfly Class had an English Lesson with Jordan-sensei and Jim-sensei. Today, we continued with the theme of possession and objects found around the classroom. The grammar point we focused on was the answer, "Yes, I do have a/an ~/No, I don't have a/an ~." in rensponse to, "Do you have a/an ~?" We played a game in which the class was split up into two teams. One child was chosen to come up front, four realia items were placed behind the whiteboard and four flashcards were placed on the whiteboard. The two teams would take it in turn, with one child asking the, "Do you have ~?" question by choosing one of the items from the whiteboard. If it matched one of the items behind the whiteboard, then they got a point. If it didn't, then the other team were then allowed to try. This was all of course facilitated with the aforementioned answer introduced at the beginning of the lesson. The team with the most points won! (Green-4 / Red-1)
