Fun Together In The Sun!

This morning we went to the park and had so much fun! Whilst we were walking there, we asked each other questions in English, What colour do you like? When is your birthday? It was great practice and nice to see the children using English in their everyday life. At the park, we made it to the top of the hill where we had views over the park and the mountains. We played together, running around and then hiding, using up all our energy 101.png Then we sang some songs on our way back, enjoying each others company and being out in the sunny weather. Once we were back at SukuSuku world we prepared for lunch.

今日は画用紙を使ってモンスターのお面作りをしましたよ✨
バタフライさんは自分でハサミを使って好きな形に切ったり、クレヨンを使って模様を描いたりしました♪
キャタピラーさんも「あお!」「あか!」と言いながら楽しそうに塗っていました!
館瀬下お面を使って今度はゲームです!!
「モンスター今何時?」というゲームを英語で行ない、モンスターが「ご飯の時間!!!」と言って追いかけてくるとみんなケラケラ笑いながら早歩きで逃げて楽しんでいました( *´艸`)

Special Days All Around!

This morning Caterpillar class joined Butterfly class for our first full graduation rehearsal. All of the children sat very nicely as we practiced the opening speeches, taking special care with every detail from the length and direction of bowing to the order and placement of each of the children. It was clear that the children understand that this is a special occasion as they were particularly well-behaved and aware of what the teachers wanted from them. With just one month until the graduation event and the subsequent changes in their school years, everyone is feeling very excited, as well as a little nervous, about the big changes ahead

今日は面白い質問が続々…
「どんな服が好きですか?」
「どんな形が好きですか?」
という質問に真面目に
「うーん、黄色い服」
「昔は丸が苦手だったけど、お姉さんになったから丸が好きになりました」
と答える子ども達に思わずにっこり(#^^#)
その後は新聞紙シアターを見ました!
いつもの新聞紙が船や服の形に変身すると「おぉ!」と声が上がりました!!

On Patrol In The Park!

This morning, Caterpillar class went to the park and what a treat was in store. We arrived at the park and were given various cardboard boxes shaped as different modes of transport: police car, bus, train, car. All of the children were so excited and their faces showed how happy they were to be able to choose which vehicle they wanted. The police car proved to be a favourite amongst many of them, chasing others and pretending they were police officers. It was so fun and so good to see how entertained they all were from something as simple as a decorated cardboard box. It was also perfect because it helped to review the content we have been learning in English Time 101.png

Whilst Caterpillar class were at the park enjoying their adventures with different vehicles, Butterfly class were having some fun outside before going to learn more phonics in their ABC lesson. This week we were working on 'sh', 'th', 'ch', 'wh', 'ng', 'ck' and 'tch' sounds. Everyone is getting so good at recognising this sounds in words now. Once we had gone through a selection of words, it was up to the class to try and spell them. For the older children they had to try to remember how to form all of the word themselves and they did really well. Their spelling abilities are improving so much!

This afternoon Caterpillar class had Japanese Traditional Play. The teachers prepared some cards with the kid's names and photos on them, as well as a sentence starting with the first character of one or more of the children's names. The game involved the children listening to the sentence read out loud and trying to identify when the first character was the same as the first character of their name!

Butterfly class had the final English lesson of the month, which means it's an English art lesson! After a month of learning prepositions (in, on, under, in front of, behind, next to & between) we wanted to make a craft that fit in with the monthly topic, and making a paper Jack-in-the-Box seemed like the perfect fit. So the class coloured in their box, before the older ones cut it out and glued it together, they then folded two long strips of paper, cut them, and then folded them into a concertina for the spring, and finally drew something to put on the spring to pop out and surprise whoever opens the box. Although they were a bit fiddly, the class really enjoyed putting these jumping jacks together.

What Can You See?

Today, Caterpillar class went outside to play. As we went to a different area today, there were many new places to explore. Some children ran around and played with jump rope with their friends. They created trains or buses and helped other children get inside. Whilst others pretended their jump ropes were snakes. It's amazing how much they can create with their imagination. Some children wanted to observe so spent some time looking out for dogs and pigeons. We had a great time exploring somewhere new!

Butterfly class played with the maze and sweet house that was set up for our Exhibition Art show on Friday. The children were so excited to be able to play again that they all ran around shouting how happy they were. Some of the children wanted to play a tea time game in the sweet house with the donuts and cookies, very yummy. Some children took the opportunity to play in the maze one more time, having loved it on Friday. All of the children were just happy to be in each others company and you can tell by all the big smiles on everyone's face 101.png

キャタピラーさんは午後、English timeで乗り物について楽しく学びました(*^-^*)
先生がボードに空や道を描いてくれたので、みんなでどの乗り物がどこを走るのか考えて答えていきました☆
車や飛行機、バスなど子ども達の大好きな乗り物がたくさん出てきてみんな嬉しそう!
0歳児の小さなお友達も、先生が優しく教えてくれるので無理なく参加することができます♪
最後はみんなでお歌をうたってFinish!
来週は英語で乗り物の名前が言えるかな!?

バタフライさんはSurprise Artでした!
今日は紙を繋げて絵を描くという、いつもよりはシンプルな内容でした☆
しかしこのシンプルな内容が実は奥が深いんです!
紙を繋げることは大人にはとても簡単な作業かもしれませんが、子どもにとっては一苦労(>_<)
「どうしたら紙がずれることなく綺麗にくっつくのかな…
そうか、お友達と協力すればいいんだ!!」
方法に気付いたので、お友達と声を掛け合って一人が紙をおさえ、一人がテープで繋げる…と力を合わせて貼り付けていってましたよ✨
この紙は次回も使うようなので、大切に保管しておきますね(*^-^*)

Spring Is Around The Corner!

Today we went to the park to play together. We were lucky to have great weather, nice and warm so we ran around and enjoyed it all. Spring is definitely on its way 179.png Some children ran and released some energy, whilst others stopped to admire the flower buds that are yet to bloom. However, it wont be long until we can enjoy seeing their beautiful colours come Spring. The older children were so good in remembering to look after the smaller children, a great attribute that they all have. They love to take care of each other and encourage the smaller children to participate. Their friendships with each other are so good to see.

その後は紙コップに風船を重ねて……大砲を作りました!
大砲にはピンポン玉を入れ、よ~くよ~く風船を引っ張って発射です!
最初はうまく飛ばせない!とうまくいかない事もありましたが、試行錯誤を重ねるうちにうまく飛ばすための力の入れ具合、向きなどを研究し、終わる頃には「先生うまく飛ばす方法教えてあげようか!」と自信たっぷりに大砲を使いこなしていました♪子ども達の成長力に歯目を見張るばかりです!

Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!

Today was the finale event to end our Exhibition Week. But first in the morning Caterpillar class went to play outside, while Butterfly class had Show & Tell. Caterpillar class went to play at the local park with skipping ropes (although some of them found some other interesting things to play with exploring the great outdoors)...
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17042229.jpg
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17043572.jpg
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17044480.jpg
...and Butterfly class had 4 children bring in their favourite things from home to show to the class. Before the kids show their classmates what they've brought the children ask questions to try to guess what it could be (Is it red? Is it square-shaped?, Is it loud?, etc) (one boy quite humorously asked 'Is it clean?' to all four of the children 106.png). The first two were not guessed correctly (a very cool planetarium projector and a lovely stationary case for Elementary school) but the last two were! One was correctly identified as a 'rabbit' (a particular rabbit character fond of ballet dancing, just like the girl who brought it in) and the other was first guessed as a 'robot' to which the child said 'Yes it is!', and then even more specifically a 'robot tyrannosaurus'!

Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17121087.jpg
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17121966.jpg
Then, in the afternoon the children all excitedly gathered to enjoy our special event, in which the preschool was transformed into 'Tachikawa Dream Land'!!! The children first gathered with their parents to present their ticket to the 'staff’ (our oldest students) to receive their personalised day pass.
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17152107.jpg

They then had their choice of one of four exciting attractions that each of the age groups had made prepared earlier on in the month for all to enjoy! One was a beautiful candy house, the children could see after stepping through the green garden with gumdrop flowers. On the walls of the house were cupcakes and lollipops, and inside their were cookies and balloons to play with!
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17195919.jpg
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17200794.jpg
At the foot of the garden of the candy house was a huge maze that our oldest children had painted to look like jungles, a spaceship, or simply adding little messages for the visitors of their attraction. The children loved exploring all of the little doors and passageways and trying not to get lost in this labyrinth.
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17245562.jpg
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17241980.jpg
The babies had even prepared their own little area more catered to their own tiny little hands and feet, with little tunnels and knick knacks to play with.
Welcome to Tachikawa Dream Land!_d0148342_17270023.jpg
The last of the attractions was an undersea voyage ride-through attraction, made by the youngest and middle members of Butterfly class. The visitors would ride inside a crab, turtle or light-up fish and voyage through the ocean looking at all of the beautiful sea creatures that the children had made, but along the way they would have to jump over a wiggly octopus tentacle, duck under a bobbing jellyfish and finally run away from a scary shark, eager to eat them!

Finally after playing with all of the attractions, 'Tachikawa Dream Land' came to a close, with the staff handing out a balloon, and a sticker inviting our delightful guests to come again some time. Thank you to everyone who came along to make this event so much fun!

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

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.
