Eiken Perfect Score 英検満点

  One of our Junior High School (中学生) students was very pleased with himself recently.

  He was unsure as to which level of eiken test (英検) he should take, so he took grade 5. Imagine his surprise when he achieved a perfect score of 850. Not a single question incorrect!

  Hopefully he'll now feel confident to challenge the higher levels!

  And remember, at englishpool we may not specifically teach for exams but all our students will more than capable of passing any exams and have confidence to use English in the wider world.

 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!

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.
