Passports Please!

  New passports ready for our 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders (小学生1年生,2年生&2年生)

  I started using them in our elementary classses (小学生クラス) a few years ago, and while a little time consuming to make, the children really enjoy getting their stamps!

Penfriends in Spain

 As a member of the Cambridge English Penfriends (ペンフレンド) programme we were delightd to be able swap cards with Colegio Rural Agrupado (C.R.A.) Javalambre school in rural Spain.

 It was great to see the enthusiasm of my students creating their cards to send to Spain, and we had a lot of fun deciding what to write. It really felt that after a year of various Covid-19 restrcitions etc, that my students were desperate to communicate with children overseas and I was really proud of their work.

 But it didn't prepare me for the replies from CRA Javalambre; the children in Spain had answered each student's letter personally and it has been a source of joy all week seeing my students faces light up as they read the letters addressed to themselves.

 So thank you CRA Javalambre and Cambridge English Penfriends (ペンフレンド) for creating a truly fantastic experience for my students.

School Calendar 2021~2022

  As one academic ends (classes until the end of Saturday 27th!) another begins.

  Here is the school calendar for 2021~2022.  School Calendar 2021~2022 (PDF95K)

  We all look forward to welcoming our students, starting on April 6th, for the next year.

  Inspired by the AGO cards used in our Junior high School class, Paul challenges you to solve a selection of English riddles.

  For starters, "What's black and white, and 'red' all over?"

  Is it a sunburnt zebra???     


  In this shortened video, I run through the first lesson of our Programming with English class (英語でプログラミング.) As well as introducing the Ozobot used in the classes, we also meet a large-as-life robot who you can shout directions at! I then procced to show how to draw lines that Ozobot can follow.

In the Evening

  Today in our Kinder class we introduced the In the Evening song....from the Potato Pals series.

  Here is a YouTube video of the song to practice at home. Can you remember all the actions?

  Have fun and good luck!











イングリッシュプール英会話教室 ポール

Paul reads a Christmas Adventure by Roderick Hunt and Alex Brychta. A seasonal offering, at Stage 6, from the Oxford Reading Tree (ORT) series.


  If the picture means nothing to you, then count yourself lucky. Since the release of the animated movie, 鬼滅の刃 (Kimetsu-no-Yaiba) aka Demon Slayer, at the end of October I've heard the names Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, Inosuke, Tomioka and Sabito (pictured) multiple times a day, from our very youngest students all the way through to Junior High School! Sometimes it seems to be the only thing they are talking about, and when they are not talking about Kimetsu, they are drawing the characters on the whiteboard, in the corner of their worksheets or, as in this case, on a scrap of paper.

 Having no desire to sit through a screening of the movie, I have no idea what it's all about but it ceratinly seems to have struck a chord children of all age groups, and unlike the Frozen boom of a few years ago, it's equally popular with both boys and girls.
