Hallowen 2019 photo album

 Photos form the recent Halloween Party are finally up on the website. As is recent practice they are behind a password. If your child attended one of the parties they should have received a slip of paper with the password on it.

   If not let me know!

Thank you for the persimmons

  A big thank you to a recent trail student, and her mother, for these lovely persimmons (柿 kaki). They are a sure sign that autumn has arrived.

 Here's a question for you, "What other name are persimmons known by in the UK?"

 And if you'd like to arrange a free trial lesson:

Jack o'Lanterns

 I was happy to receive these cute mini Jack o'lanterns from one of our students. They look great in the classroom. Thank you!

  And they're also a great opportunity to remind our students that the Halloween Party is tomorrow ( from 14:30 and 16:30 depending on your child's age.)

  Happy Halloween!

Penfriends 2019

  This month all our upper elementary (小学生) students are taking part in the Cambridge English Penfriends (ペンフレンド).

  We are now in our third year of exchanging message cards with English lanaguage schools around the world. It's always a pleasure to see our students get excited about communicating with children in other countries, and it gives them a real boost to their English studies.

  Our cards are almost all completed, so now it's a matter of waiting for the replies!

  In the meantime you can view englishpool's profile on the Cambridge English Penfriends site.

Gingerbread People

  Tried this fun craft in our kinder class on Saturday. We are currently learning body vocabulary and while the Head Shoulders Knees and Toes song works great, I really struggle to get the children to remember 'arms' and 'legs'.

  Hopefully the gingerbread people (not men as I think they all made girls!) will reinforce their learning.

 

  It's that time of year again; the night's are drawing in, and even though it's still 30 degrees outside, it can only mean that the englishpool Halloween Party (ハロウィンパーティー) is near.

  This year's parties will take place on October 27th.

  Sprouts (スプラウツ) and Kinder (キンダー) students from 14:30 to 16:00.

  Elementary (小学生) students from 16:30 to 18:00.

  Happy Halloween!

Odd Couple

 Something to brighten up your Tuesday. The children in our Saturday Kinder class (キンダークラス) created this odd couple on the school's whiteboard.

 A combination of marker pens and cut-outs from an old Apricot Learning World activity pack gave us a load of laughs, and hopefully cemented some of the body vocabulary.

Inside Our House

  We had the chance this week in our Elementary A classes (小1&小2) to try the Cengage National Geographic online site My NG Connect; https://www.myngconnect.com.

  The site has of a game type feel to it, and students can choose a unit to play games, complete activities etc. all related to the targets they are learning in class. Great for reviewing!

  We tried Unit 5, Inside Our House, and I was impressed at much they enjoyed it. There were a few bits that I had to read in order for them to complete the activity, but mostly the students were able to complete most activities and games by themselves.

  For englishpool students you can find the information needed to access the My NG Connect site inside your child's textbook.

In the House

  As part the Explore Our World level 2 textbook we've been looking at things found around the home, and using prepositions to describe where they are in relation to each other.,

  e.g. "Where is the refrigerator?", "It's between the sink and the stove."

 Some of the elementary classes this week have had the chance to engage in a little craft work, to further reinforce their understanding.

 Pictured above is one of their completed pictures.
