カラフルレインコート♪

今日は冷たい雨が降っていますね。
外に出られなかったことは残念でしたが、みんなでレインコート作りをしました♪

色とりどりのカラーポリの中からそれぞれ好きな色を選ぶと大はしゃぎ!!

ペンで絵を描いたり、テープをペタペタと貼ったり、
スズランテープでリボンを作ったり、キラキラなビジューをつけたり。
ファッションデザイナーになった気分で個性あふれるレインコートを作りました♪
バタフライさんはもちろん、キャタピラーさんも長い間集中して取り組んでいました114.png
最後はみんなで記念撮影✨
ぜひこのレインコートを着て雨の日にお外に出てみてくださいね110.png

This afternoon our Saturday class made a giant board game! After seeing the big dice we all made some different squares of the 'board', including different messages like 'find something pink', 'sleep for 2 turns' and 'roll again!'. After drawing a bunch of different special squares we arranged them into a big course over the floor of the classroom and each took it in turns to roll the dice and move to the relevant space. The children (and the teachers) used Japanese and English in their special squares to make it extra tricky and extra fun! Everyone had a really great time making and playing this giant board game!

だんだんと暖かい陽気が続き、周りの風景も緑や花の色が増え、春の訪れを子ども達も感じています♪
再来週の卒園式に向けての練習も順調に進み、当日には素敵な桜が咲くことを期待しています♪

午前中は卒園式のリハーサルを行いました♪
リハーサルの回数を重ねるごとにキャタピラーさんもバタフライさんもどちらも歌声がどんどん大きくなっています♪
表情も年長さんは凛々しい顔つきになり、年中さん、年少さんは笑顔で見送れるようになってきました!
年長さんの真剣な表情を見ているとキャタピラーさんも今まで遊んでもらった思い出を振り返っているのか、少し名残惜しそうな、でも笑顔で見送ろうとしているようなそんな表情でリハーサルに取り組んでいました!

This afternoon Butterfly class had their ABC Lesson, in which we learned how to read and write words with the letter combinations 'ai' and 'ay'. The class had a chance to read some words (such as say, play, train, hair, etc) and then we played a game to test their understanding. The class were presented with two options for each part of the word, and then the teacher would say the word and a student would choose each part of the word, whilst the rest of the class help them by saying things like 'I think it's right!', 'I think it's wrong' and 'I think it's left!', there were no handwriting worksheets today. Afterwards Butterfly class had their last Japanese Flower Arranging class of the academic year, they quickly made some beautiful tall flower displays before the eldest members of the class gave a farewell gift to the teacher.

Caterpillar class were busy as bees this afternoon with their Art Lesson to decorate the room for spring next month, with each age group working on a different craft. The 0 year olds painted some big Easter eggs and the 1 year olds made some adorable bees by using yellow cardboard tubes and attaching wings, eyes and antennae before wrapping some black string around for their characteristic black stripes. The 2 year olds made some cute bunnies using origami and then drawing on the face, they all turned out adorable!

The Flowers Came Out To Play!

Today Caterpillar class headed to the park. It has been a beautiful day for the weather, so we were really lucky. As we walked to the park we spotted pigeons and all said Hello 101.png With the Sun out we made it to the park in record time so we had lots of time to enjoy ourselves. As it is getting warmer, we have started to see more flowers blooming. So today we spent some time looking for flowers much to everyone's delight. Everyone was running around, trying to find as many as they could. The older children were being great big brothers and sisters to their younger classmates, helping them to find some flowers or sharing the ones they had already found.

Butterfly class were also enjoying the sun rays today at the park. As the weather was so good they decided to go on a bit of an adventure and explore further into the park. They had brought balls, as well as buckets and spades to play with. Yet, the buckets and spades were the clear favourite. The children took to building all sorts of creations with the sand. One girl made a cake out of grass and acorns; a great way to demonstrate her imagination and creativity. The children truly love these Spring days, where they can explore and play with their friends.

バタフライさんはFree Timeで大好きなオモチャを使っておままごとをしたり、レゴブロックでかっこいい車や飛行機を作っていました☆
最近のバタフラクラスの子はオモチャのレジに入っているお金に興味があるようで「10円がいい~」などとお友達と交換したりお買い物ごっこを楽しんでいます!

暖かい日が続き毎日お散歩にいきたくなりますね!花粉が多いのでつらい時期ですが、明日もお散歩に行って体を動かしたいですね♪

A Day of Creativity!

今日の昼間はとてもいいお天気でしたね!
子どもたちも上着なしで外へ出かけることができました☆
両クラスともウォーターパークへ行きました♪
春のような陽気だったので、「春はもうすぐ?」
とお話をするお友達もいました。
お花を眺めたり走ったり、とても心地よく過ごせました🌷

そのあとは音楽遊びです♪
今日はMariko先生が星の形のお人形を持ってきてくれました☆
それに合わせてきらきら星を歌いました♪
メロディはみんな馴染みがあると思いますが、歌詞は意外と難しく、みんな覚えようと一生懸命に歌いました☆

新しいお歌も教わりました!
「ドキドキどン!一年生!」というものです。
歌詞を聞くと、年長さんは本当にもうすぐ小学生になるんだ✨
としんみりしてしまいました。
さみしいですが、進級進学で楽しみなこともありますね!
年長さんにとっては音楽遊びは残り数回となってしまいますが、
楽しく歌って過ごしたいと思います♪

This afternoon Butterfly class had their English lesson. We continued to learn about our daily routine. We added to our knowledge of what we do in the morning by learning about what we do in the evening: I go home, I take a shower, I eat dinner, I read a book, I watch TV, I go to bed. Once we all felt more confident with these new sentences, the children played a game. The teacher would ask the question, What do you do in the morning? or What do you do in the evening? The children then had to find a corresponding flash card and say the full sentence, including, In the evening or In the morning, in order to receive 2 points for their team. Everyone did so well at this and used this month's English song, I wake up, to help them remember what they do in the morning if they were finding it a little difficult. Both teams ended up with the same number of points to everyone's surprise 101.png

Caterpillar class' older children had an art lesson this afternoon where they made some beautiful butterflies that will be displayed in their new classroom as they move up to Butterfly class. By using traditional Japanese paper and paints, the butterflies had a beautiful effect to them. Whilst the older children were filling their minds with butterflies and creativity, the younger children were using toy blocks to build all sorts of things. Even something the children use every day can be used in a different way once they see a new creation.

上手になってきた!

今日は午前中卒園式のリハーサルがありました!
以前はウトウトしてしまう子もいましたが、今日は他のお友達を真剣に見ていられるようになりました!
上手になってきた!_d0148342_16274498.jpg
スピーチや歌は以前よりも大きな声が出るようになり、先生たちから「前より上手になってきたね」と褒められるようになりました。
また年長さんは以前より自信をもって、証書を受け取る姿が見られ、「もうすぐ卒園なんだな」としみじみ感じてしまいました。
キャタピラーさんは今回の歌で掛け合いをする場面があるのですが、そこが以前よりもうまくなり、大きな声で「Good bye!]と言えるようになって、先生たちもびっくりしていました!!
上手になってきた!_d0148342_16275792.jpg
まだまだ忘れてしまうところもあるので、そこはクラスでしっかり練習していこうとなりました!
もう卒園式まで2週間ほどですね。
子どもたちの成長を楽しみながら、このメンバーと楽しく過ごせるよう日々を大切にしていきたいと思います(^^♪

This afternoon Caterpillar class continued learning about Spring words in their English lesson. Sophie Sensei brought along our adorable little ladybugs that love to land on different parts of your body so we could sing our Ladybug song and move the cute little insects to the music. Afterwards we learned 4 new words (rainbow, butterfly, flower and frog) through a memory game, and then tried attaching the onto eight petals of a big flower!

Meanwhile Butterfly class were making some beautiful seasonal cherry blossom trees by folding some pink tissue paper and twisting it at one side to create a flower, and then gluing it onto a pink paper tree. The pieces really captured the beauty of this typically Japanese fauna.

Cooking Fun!

Today we had a cooking lesson, with both Caterpillar class and Butterfly class. We could all smell something yummy before we walked in and saw all of our ingredients. Intrigued as to what it could be, the children all sat down, dressed in their aprons ready to find out what we were making. The look on their faces when they saw it was Oreo cheesecake was one of pure delight. Caterpillar class needed a little bit more of a helping hand, but they got stuck in and tried their best. They were smashing the cookies and mixing away. As we were getting closer to finishing, the children all began to ask if they could eat some of the cheesecake, but they will have to wait until snack time to enjoy. 101.png

Butterfly class also had cooking lesson but they were much more independent in their cooking abilities. They all wanted to try doing it for themselves. They found the biscuit base easy to make, but did find it a little more difficult to whisk all of the ingredients together to make it soft enough to enjoy. All of the children were very much looking forward to eating the cheesecake 110.png

バタフライさんは日本語のレッスンがありました!
今日は「わ行」ということで、「最後のあいうえおだ!!」と大喜びの子どもたしでした♪
しかし、わ行というのは3文字しかないですが、なかなか言葉を探すのは難しく、をから始まる言葉…?んから始まる言葉…?となかなか出てこなくて考え込んでしまう子どもたちでした( ;∀;)
それでも、字を書くのはとても上手で、プリントをきれいに仕上げていました♪
