Looking Forward

 As we enter the 4th week of our temporary closure due to coronavirus Covid-19, we are are starting turn our minds to the new school year.

   All being well, we hope to reopen englishpool to children's classes from the second week of April, as usual after the school spring break. To that effect today we've put details of our children's courses on the window, as with nothing happening inside englishpool we were in danger of looking like we'd closed permanently! Which is definitely not the case!

  PLEASE NOTE: Of course this is all dependent on the current advice from the government, both national and local, but basically if the Elementary Schools, Junior High Schools and High Schools return then we will follow their lead.

小学生フォニックス: a can

As part of our elementary phonics (小学生フォニックス) programme, we use the Jelly and Bean books to step into reading. This is the second book in the series and has the children reading 'cat',''hat','can','man','cot' and 'hot'.


Another of Paul's favourite books, Piggybook by Anthony Browne. Listen and watch as Paul reads the story of the Piggott family, and see what happens when Mrs.Piggott decides she's had enough of cleaning up after her husband and children. Oink! Oink!

A good book to get your children/husband helping around the house!

フォニックス a bat
