Blue class -Senrioka School-


Hello everyone! The Power Up 4 class on Mondays and Thursdays has been very active. Our current theme is music and the children are learning about musical instruments from around the world. They are doing a good balance of listening, writing, and speaking activities.

They are doing their best to remember new spelling words and new grammar points.They have been very talkative and enjoy expressing themselves in class.

They recently took practice tests for the YLE exams and everyone tried hard to do well.
The children have also enjoyed the new internet learning activities in addition to Spelling City,to which they are already familiar.
We're looking forward to more exciting times ahead! Thank you for your support!

Green class -Takatsuki Ibaraki School-


It is a pleasure to be able to teach the students in Green class once again!
We are slowly getting used to our new Power Up 4 textbooks and are enjoying the content in them.

We have been working on using the Present Perfect tense with the past participle. We have been using the phrase "Have you ever..." to talk about past experiences.

We enjoyed learning about different topics such as transportation, the environment and places we've visited on vacations. We just started a new unit on telling time. Let's have a great year together!

Orange class-Senrioka School-

In our after school class, we've been learning about our extended families. We talked about what makes family different from friends, and what they mean to us.

After doing a bit of research into our families, we decided to do a bit of a visual representation of what we'd learned by making family trees. Each student made the tree bark and branches by tracing their own hands and arms. Then, leaves of various colors were cut out, and family member names were written on them. Students were encouraged to include their immediate family, and as much extended family as they could (and even pets!). All the leaves were glued to the trees, making beautifully unique family trees.


The students all did a wonderful job, and we had a great time!

We have been focusing on reading and key grammar points such as irregular past tense verbs and relative clauses.


We have been working on special projects and playing some games to keep the atmosphere fun and welcoming. The children have been working really hard.

Green - Senri Yamada School-


We have been using a new textbook, Power Up English 4, this year. The children have just started using the online features that the book has. Computer time is never quiet! The children talk to each other, give hints and challenge each other to complete a challenge faster or beat a high score.


First we started with a vocabulary exercise. The children tried to remember the names of the characters we met in the textbook.


Next came a sentence matching challenge. The children to read a sentence and match it to the person doing that action.


There are also video activities. The children must listen and watch the video carefully to find the answers they need.

Remember that the children can use all of these activities and materials at home. I hope that all the children in the Green class will do so!
