Movers 2 - Senri Yamada School-

The Movers recently studied about animals and their habits in two units from their textbooks.
At the of these units, each child made an animal booklet to write about some of the things they learned or already knew about an animal and used some of the new grammar techniques they have been working on.


The Movers worked together with their partners to come up with interesting things to write about in their booklet. They also checked each other's work for mistakes.


The Movers seemed proud of what they accomplished with this project. They also enjoyed reading and showing their animal booklets to their classmates.

All of the booklets were fantastic! At the end of the presentations, the Movers voted anonymously for the booklet they liked the most.

Flyers 4 - Senri Yamada School-

Flyers 4 - Wednesdays, Fridays>

In our After School Class, we have a student book and workbook that we use regularly. But we always add various activities to make learning more fun.

One activity we do everyday is reading out loud. We stand up, straighten our backs and read in a group or take turns. Reading aloud is a wonderful tool to help you learn to read smoothly and build fluency skills and confidence.



We also play many games such as card games, guessing games and matching games. Games are an enjoyable way to enhance the children’s motivation.



Children also use their journals to be creative. It helps them express what they want to say through writing and drawing.



Our main goal is to learn English and to become better speakers, readers and writers, which is achieved through various interesting approaches in our After School class!

Summer School 2018 August 18th- Final!

Today was the las day of the Summer School at Global Village.
It has been a wonderful week and we hope that every child will have made some good memories and perhaps some new friends also.
The children had a week of play, exploration, and creativity.
This year, we have worked hard to develop a freer format that allowed the teachers and children to focus on the activities that were the most engaging.

とうとうグローバルヴィレッジサマースクール2018の最終日となりました。遊びや探究、制作活動を通し、たくさんの楽しい夏の思い出や、新しい友達もできたことと思います。今年のサマースクールは、実際に子ども達が興味を示した内容を深く掘り下げることに重視し、1日を子ども達に合わせて組み立てていく方法ととりました。






The older children became very involved in building their mazes and battleships. Today, they were adding the final touches and playing with their new games.
The younger classes have a lot to bring home today. Over the course of the week they had made a snakes and ladders board, a fruit and vegetables garden, a fishing game, marbled paper, and water gun art.

大きな子ども達が手間ひま掛けて制作したバトルシップゲームと迷宮迷路もついに完成し、皆で遊ぶことができました。小さな子ども達も、蛇と梯子ゲーム、フルーツと野菜のガーデン、釣りゲーム、マーブルアート、そしてウォーターガンアートなど、楽しい制作の数々を持ち帰りました。




We found found that it was the simplest activities that were the most engaging. Seeing how many drops of water could be placed on a ten yen coin, floating 1 yen coins using a paperclip, colour bingo, or play dough. The children used today to go back and repeat what the liked from the week.

今日はサマースクール中に行った活動の中で、子ども達がもう一度やりたいものをいくつか繰り返してみました。「10円玉に何滴の水を乗せることができるのか調べてみる」「ペーパークリップを上手く使い1円玉を水に浮かせる」「色を使ったカラービンゴ」「粘土遊び」など、子ども達がとてもシンプルなことに興味を示し、集中できることがわかりました。




The younger children wanted to use the parachute for fun and games again today. Some of the older children tried out traditional playground games that have been played in schools from around the world.

小さな子ども達はもう一度カラーバルーンを使った遊びをしたいと言い、大きな子ども達は世界中の小学校で楽しまれている色々な遊びで盛り上がりました。



Each child received a certificate of achievement having completed the Global Village Summer School 2018 before saying goodbye to their teachers.
On behalf of the school and all our staff, we would like to thank you for doing us and we hope that you will join our school community for other events or programmes. Next week is our Summer Festival. We would be very happy to see you and invite you to try a wide variety of games, food and other booths.

何事にも楽しく前向きに参加してくれた皆に、グローバルヴィレッジサマースクール2018の修了証明書が贈られました。
スタッフ一同を代表し、素晴らしい一週間を皆さんと過ごさせていただけたことに大変感謝いたします。また園のイベントやサタデースクールでお会いすることを楽しみにしております。来週はお楽しみの夏祭りを開催予定です。グローバルヴィレッジならではの楽しいゲームや食べ物を計画しておりますので、是非皆さんでお越しください!

Summer School 2018 August 17th

Today the children put the finishing touches on their labyrinths. They had a lot of fun designing the labyrinths over the week and were really excited to get the holes drilled into them and begin trying them out!

いよいよ迷宮迷路も仕上げの作業を行う段階となりました。サマースクール初日からじっくりと準備を重ねてきた迷路なので、ゴールの穴を開けてビー玉を転がすのが待ち遠しいですね!



The upper elementary classes learned about how water can be transferred from one place to another. They used cups, tubing, gutters, and straws to try mixing different colored water from one place to another.
The younger classes learned a lot about how objects sink or float and also got a chance to make their own tin foil boats to see if they could make objects float on the water.
A simple activity where the children showed lots of focus was floating 1 yen coins on the surf of the water.

大きな子どものクラスでは、水がどのように移動していくのかについて調べました。カップや、スポイト、「とい」やストローを使い、異なる色の水を混ぜて確認しました。一方小さな子ども達のクラスでは、物体が沈んだり浮いたりすることについて多くのことを学びました。物体が水に浮くことが出来るのか、皆でアルミホイルボートを作り確認することができました。水面に一円玉を浮かせよういうアクティビティーでは、素晴らしい集中力を見せてくれました。




The children finished off their origami gardens today, adding the final decorations to the garden itself and also making a few final fruits and vegetables to add in to it.

小さな子ども達のクラスでは、フルーツや野菜を加え、最後の装飾を施して、とても素敵な折り紙ガーデンがついに完成しました。



The younger classes also completed their name initial projects today, removing the tape from their letter. They came out really well and the children were excited to see the final results.

名前の頭文字に関するプロジェクトでは、台紙から貼ってあったテープを剥がす作業を行いました。浮かび上がった自分のイニシャルを見た子ども達、出来栄えに大満足の様子でした!



We also learned about marbling today. The children used shaving foam mixed with different food colors to create a unique splash of color before pressing a paper into it to create a marbled work of art. They were really impressed with how it turned out.

更に今日はマーブルアートにも挑戦しました。シェービングフォームの上に食紅を溶いた液体を何色か垂らし、細いスティックを右に左に動かしていくとユニークな模様が現れました。紙を上から押し付けて、ゆっくりめくってみると綺麗なマーブル模様が現れてみんなびっくりしていました。




It has been a really exciting and fun week full of laughter and learning. We are sad that tomorrow will be our last day together, but we are looking forward to one more day of fun!

笑いと楽しい学びでいっぱいの、本当にエキサイティングな一週間です。明日が最後の日になってしまうのはさみしいですが、明日もとびきり楽しく過ごしましょう!

Summer School 2018 August 16th

It was day 4 of Summer School. We have enjoyed a lot of game and activities today, while continuing with out longer-term projects.

サマースクールの第4日目、長期的なプロジェクトを継続しつつ、今日も様々なゲームやアクティビティーを満喫した1日となりました。



Our younger classes continued to make origami and paper fruit and vegetables. While some continue to work on their garden, in Takatsuki we made a basket for our vegetables, instead of the garden as we found the it provided a good level of challenge for the younger children. It has been amazing to see the children's creativity and to allow them to explore which fruits and vegetables they like the most and why.

小さな子どものクラスでは、昨日に引き続き庭作りのため、折り紙や色を塗ったフルーツや野菜をたくさん用意しました。高槻校では子ども達の切り抜いたフルーツを見るうちに、庭ではなく「カゴ」に盛り付けたらどうだろうと、急きょカゴ作りにチャレンジした子もいます。豊かな創造力や、一番好きなフルーツや野菜はどれなのか、どうして好きなのかと探究する子ども達に驚かされました!




We also continued to work on some of our language targets for the week through mediums such as play-doh and clothespins. We also began to explore the concept of floating and sinking with a simple game to prepare us for all the fun water games we will have tomorrow!

粘土や洗濯バサミなどといった様々な物を用いながら、サマースクール期間中に学んで貰いたい言葉を子ども達は知らず知らず吸収しています。また今日は明日に予定している水を使った面白いゲームの準備として、浮き・沈みのコンセプトについて考えてみました。




The upper levels practiced making mazes by using strips of paper. Large ice-lolly sticks were used to help us keep the path wide enough for a marble to run through.
After, we started to draw our mazes onto our wooden boards. It was tricky, so we also tried following examples from out teachers. The mazes are coming along nicely and we can't wait for you to see them when they are complete!

大きな子ども達のクラスでは細長い紙片を使って迷路を作る練習をしてから、いよいよボード上に迷路を作りだしていきます。ビー玉が通り抜けれるように、太いアイス用のスティックを利用して道幅を確保してみました。難しい作業ですが、先生の作ったサンプルを参考にしたりと皆真剣そのものです。いくつもの手順を踏み、徐々に形を成してきた手作り迷路、完成が待ち遠しいですね!
