[👘NinjHeroes👘]

 

Week 2 of FunShine’s Summer School program saw our students enrolled in Ninja Academy! All week we learned ninjutsu essentials like tongue twisters, advanced pool-splashing, rapping and cooking. By the end of our training, the Hidden FunShine Village could boast three squads of elite ninja operatives!

📖Day1:Enter the Ninja📖

 

朝から、「はぁッ💨」・「とぉっ💨」と忍者になりきって登園してくれた子ども達★

早く忍者のLessonがしたいようでそわそわしていました!!

お名前を呼ばれたら、もちろん忍者ですから

「I’m not here!」(私はここにいませんよぉ!)

言葉を発している時点でいないわけはないのですが……🤣

隠れながら「I’m not here!」と答える子どもたちの姿はとても可愛らしかったです💕

忍者になるために必要なこと……それは忍者の衣装(Ninja costume)です🎽

大事なのは、まずは形からなりきっていく笑

まずは手裏剣の名札(Shuriken badge)を英語で書いてつけます📛

 

 

そして、好きなデザインで自分のオリジナル忍者の衣装を作っていきました。

どうですか?!素敵な忍者になったでしょう😆

 

 

🏃‍♀️Day2:Ninja Training🏃

 

Day 2 of Ninja Academy was the beginning of serious ninja training. In the morning, we learned some important ninja passwords for listening ability and teamwork. Learning some vocabulary such as “wolfpack” and “shooting stars,” ninja squad leaders could secretly communicate commands with their teams for some truly awesome teamwork.

 

 

Next we practiced our verbal skills with Ninja Tongue Twisters such as “Are you sure you should shoot such a sharp shuriken?” and “Ninjas in just ninjutsu shoes eat some sushi from the sushi shop.”

Now it was time for Level One’s final test, a difficult and dangerous Ninja Rap, in which the kids needed to learn a variety of command vocabulary and listen carefully to the commands of their rapping Ninja Commander.

After completing these challenges, the kids received certificates and “Nin” badges for completing Level One of Ninja Training!

 

 

🌊 Day 3:Battle for Ninja River 🌊☆Pool day☆

 

この日は、なんと悪い忍者がやってきました💦

子どもたちは身を守るため、英語でColorをLessonした後に

絵の具を使って隠れ身の術“Camouflage”の忍術を使いました。

もちろん、隠れるだけではなく力を合わせて戦いました!!

お水が顔にかかるのが嫌でPoolが苦手なお友達も、

忍者になりきると楽しんで入ってくれていましたよ🏊‍♀️

また、Craftでは

“Hidden Ninja Pond (忍者は池のどこに隠れているでしょぉーか?)”

作りました🌱

大きいお兄さん、お姉さんはColorのLesson行ったことを踏まえ

絵の具で池の水も塗っていきました🎨🖌

 

 

All week, our three clan leaders (Elementary School students) participated in an additional mission: crafting a special English makimono for their mothers. They each chose an inspirational ninja quote in English, crafted a long paper scroll and painted a beautiful message, showing off their excellent grasp of English and motor skills.


 

🍪Day4:Kitchen Ninjitsu Mission 🍪

☆Cooking day~Shuriken Cookies~☆

Day 4 of Ninja Training saw our final two tests: cooking and the deadly trap course.

In our ninja cooking course, the children made shuriken cookies out of harumaki wraps and chocolate chips. Our older students used knives to slice, and all the kids folded with deadly precision to make dangerous and delicious cookies of death!

 

 

After lunch and a delicious snack, we conquered a fearsome gauntlet of traps and obstacles. After getting through this challenge, the kids could finally claim to be true ninja!

 

 

🏯Day5:Field Trip Day~東京あそびマーレ~🏯

最後の修行は、実際に忍者の城での手裏剣技の披露です!!

遠足の行き先である室内遊園地“東京あそびマーレ”には、忍者屋敷あります🏯

夏なのに雪遊びができる“Snow park”を楽しみにしているお友達、

Mainは忍者屋敷ですからね!!!!!

遊びは子ども達にとって1番の修行✨

たくさん遊んでかっこいい忍者になりましたね♪

Our Day 5 Field Trip was to Asobimare, which is not only home to a number of amazing, active play areas, but also to a strange, fascinating Ninja Room! This room contains a number of challenges and illusions that tested all of our ninja skills. Perhaps the most fun was had in the Snow Park, where the kids could have snowball fights, build little snowmen, and ride on sleds!

 

 

That wraps up Week 2, Ninja Heroes! Coming up next, be sure to check out our report on Week 3, Space Spy Academy!
