Kinder A 千里丘校

吹田祭りも近づいてきました。
KAのクラスは、初めての吹田祭りになります。
パレードでの踊りの練習も上手になってきました。暑い中でのパレードになりますが、楽しく踊れたらと思います。

We are getting ready for Suita Matsuri.
Dancing and walking together is not easy for them especially when we turn around. Everybody lost their balance, but we are getting better.




“Magic Carpet”
Do you believe in “Magic”?
It makes your wishes come true. It is a very special carpet for KA class.

“Make a wish” but don’t tell anybody…
KAの魔法のカーペットは、みんなの願いをかなえてくれる特別な力を持ったカーペットです。月に1回子ども達は、カーペットに座り、自分のお願いごとを唱えます。
Please take care of it.

お願いをした後は、大切にたたんで箱の中へ。
“Magic carpet will watch you”...

Nursery 千里丘校

We want to introduce a book called “Ten Shiny Snails” written by Ruth Galloway.
カタツムリが主人公のお話ですが、他にもたくさんの動物は、乗り物が登場します。主に、Counting を楽しみながら、学ぶことができる絵本です。
大好きなカタツムリを手で作りながら、お子様と一緒に楽しめます。






Let's play with play-dough!!
Today, we used yellow play-dough, colorful feathers, Popsicle sticks and blocks. We let children have a free choice that they could make anything they liked. This was so they could use their imagination.
今日は何かを作ろうとは決めずに、子ども達が好きなように思い思いに作りました。とても素敵な作品が出来上がりました。

吹田祭り

2012吹田祭りに参加しました。今年はドラゴンがテーマです!!

For this year’s Suita Matsuri Owen (Senrioka teacher) organized and made a Chinese dragon! The children were able to express themselves artistically as they decorated the body using recycled materials.
千里丘校のOwen先生を中心に5月よりプロジェクトが始動し、環境問題やアートプログラムを取り入れながら進めてきました。そして、昨日の吹田祭りで空に舞いました!!


Here, Owen does a final” head check” as Joe spies another dragon.
直前までドラゴンチェックをするOwen先生と、他のチームのドラゴンが気になる園長!!



Waiting to start the parade, the dragon and teachers look happy!
さて、列に並んで…スタート直前です。ドラゴンうれしそう…!!



We’re following our parade leaders from the Boy and Girl Scouts.
ボーイ・ガールスカウトを先頭に進みます。



Dancing with our colorful pom poms to “kung-Fu Panda”.
ダンス隊は、カンフーパンダの曲に合わせて踊ります!!



This is the music team!!



Here we are crossing another dragon in the parade!
折り返しで、他のドラゴンチームと遭遇しましたよ!!



By the end of the parade our dragon looks fierce! Roar!!
ドラゴン鼻息荒くますます天高く舞っています。
It was a really hot day, but we all danced and did our best with our dragon! Yay!

Koalas Class 千里山田校

On July 26th the Koalas went for an outing to Senri Chuo Park where we were able to play on the roller slide and jungle gym!




Although it was very hot the Koalas enjoyed themselves very much with a day of just play!

The boys had fun looking for bugs, while some of the girls enjoyed searching for flowers.




暑い夏の自然を存分に満喫したコアラズクラスでした!

Pre-K Jr 千里丘校

In July, the summer has come with the roar of the rain, the heat and the sounds of spacemen and their rockets. All month we have been talking about rockets and space and here are some of the things that we have done. First off, while we have waited for our friends, we have been pretending to be rockets standing really close to the ground and counting down until we can “blast off” to go to our many destinations. But not only that! We made our own rockets out of paper cups during our brain building and creative project times.



We practiced holding markers properly while we drew our own faces into the rocket window, developed out fine motor skills by making the flames that came out of the tail and the plates that make out rockets’ design. We also used those rockets to talk about facial features after giving those facial features to the spaceman that is in the rocket with us.





Now at the end of July, we have an amazing mural in Junior class.

To beat the heat, we have started going to the pool. I hope that we can have lots of fun and many chances to play together in the water! The children really like having the chance to get the teachers wet and cooled off too.
