New School Chirashi

  Well, I finally redesigned our school leaflet, called chirashi in Japanese. The can't believe that we had been using the old leaflet, more or less unchanged, for nine years.

  Hopefully the new chirsahi will be just as successful as the previous version.

  You can take a look for yourself by clicking here:  2018 スクールチラシ(PDF)

  Thank you for reading!

Reading Challenge

  Starting this week we have set our elementary students a challenge; to read sixteen books from across our graded reading series.

  For each book they read they will receive a stamp on their challenge card, and a full card will entitle them to choose a present.

  The graded reader series we have available are Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Star, Learn Abouts, Songbirds, Collins Big Cat, Projext X, Penguin Kids, Floppy's Phonics and Tom and Bella (from Jelly and Bean.)

Passports Please!

 At last, the third set of passports are ready to be issued to our Kinder class students. For each unit in the textbook,  I have listed the vocabulary they have learned as well as a very simple phrase they will have mastered during the unit. Upon completion they will receive a stamp in their passport. 

 Hopefully they will be as well received as in the Elementary classes, where the passports are keeping everybody focused on progressing and gaining more stamps.

An Origami Fish

Received this delightful origami fish from one of our younger students yesterday.

A perfect match for one of my favourite children's books Hooray for Fish; stripey fish, scary fish, elefish and origami paperfish!

Yummy Yucky

  Two new books for the library. Yummy Yucky and Quiet Loud by Leslie Patricelli.

  Yummy Yucky is actually a replacement for a lost copy, it was always a go to book when teaching food topics and has been sorely missed.

  Quiet and Loud is along the same lines and looks like it will work well when teaching opposites.

Summer 2018

  This is our summer window for 2018. I decided this year to give the whole window area over to the display.

  It consists of various speech bubbles with snippets of English such as "What's your favourite food?","Can you play tennis?", "How old are you?" etc along with a height chart for the question, "How tall are you?" The whole idea being that it encourages those who notice it to participate by asking and answering questions in English. 

  By the way englishpool is closed between July 29 to August 22.
