Here's Greg-sensei and Lilly class in action, rehearsing their play for Performance Day (おゆうぎ会). Greg-sensei has been helping the children with their pronunciation and also helping the children to act (he informs me that in his school days he was a young stage talent).
The name of the play is top-secret to keep it a surprise for the big day.

Today Lee-sensei, led an SI activity in Bamboo class. On Monday Sobia-sensei will lead an SI activity in Cherry and Greg will do the same in Lilly.
SI is based on a multiple intelligences theory. This theory basically says that intelligence is made up of lots of different sub-intelligences. The lessons involve very limited input from the teacher, who is more like a facilitator and supports the children with lot's of praise.
The activities are quite like puzzles and the children always seem to enjoy the challenge.

This week we had mixed-year activities. Bamboo, Lilly and Cherry are mixed together and divided into four groups. Each group does an activity with a English teacher. This week, Augusto took the Monkey group for making paper medallions, Anwar took the Dog group for making wind-spinners, Lee took the Cow group for ball games and Sobia took the Lion group for making paper frogs. Of course, all the activities are done in English.
Next week I'll give an outline here of the themes for October.
今週はなかよしあそびがありました。バンブークラスとリリークラスとチェリークラスは合同となって4グループに分かれました。それぞれのグループが英語の先生と活動するのですが、今週はアウグスト先生はさるグループを担当して紙のメダル作り、アンワール先生は犬グループでかざぐるま作り、リー先生は牛グループでボール遊び、そしてソビア先生はライオングループで紙のカエル作りをしました。もちろん全ての活動は英語でされます。来週は10月のテーマをお知らせします。

The children have been really applying themselves to practicing for Sports Day this week.
Bamboo, Lilly and Cherry have done origami work (moon and rabbits) in their art books and also learnt about the night sky.
Today was also the monthly Birthday Party. After the party in the hall Bamboo, Lilly and Cherry children went back to their classes and the birthday children and their mothers were interviewed by their classmates and teachers. The questions were asked in English.
Bamboo and Lilly also did work on their monthly sight-reader books.
The teachers are beginning to make ghoulish plans for the whole kindergarten Halloween Party!
運動会を前にどのクラスもかけっこや、おゆうぎのおけいこががんばっています。
バンブークラス、リリークラス、チェリークラス共に制作帳では折り紙で月とうさぎを作ったり、夜空に関する英語を学んだりしました。
今日は9月の誕生会でした。体育館でのパーティあと、バンブー、りりー、チェリークラスの子ども達は各教室に戻り誕生会の子ども達とお母さん達はクラスの友達と先生にインタービューをされました。質問は英語でされます。バンブーとりりーは今月の絵本をしました。

September's monthly English sight reading books - 9月号の絵本.
Bamboo: Oxford Reading Tree (stage 4) "Come in"
Lilly: Longman's Mice series 2 "Back to School" .

September's songs 9月の季節の曲: "Row, row, row your boat", "Butterfly" and "Watermelon".

This term sees the introduction of seasonal songs in English. These songs will enable the children to practice the language they are learning more often. The songs also have movements which are relevant to the words. This helps the children to remember as the word become an action, as well as a sound. The songs are either well known songs or are adapted versions of well-known songs.
今学期は季節の歌を英語で紹介しようと思います。紹介する歌には習った単語やこれから習う単語がたくさんでできます。指遊びやおゆうぎも、歌詞にあったものを考えました。歌を歌いながらすると単語も動作も覚えやすくなると思いますよ。皆もよく知っている曲やメロディーはそのままで歌詞だけ歌いやすくかえたものもあります。

In the summer term this year (2007) we have started doing P.E in English. This is being applied progressively to all the classes in the Immersion Programme.

This is Bamboo class doing work on the gym horse.
