New friends to play with, new teachers to study English with, new exciting topics to talk about, new goals, new dreams! And of course, a lot of excitement!
In April, our Kinder class kids studied about animals. We talked about animals that live in different habitats, belong to different groups and can do different things. All FunShine kids love animals, so it was super-fun for them to talk about their favourites and share their knowledge!
We made cute animal crafts; the Blueberries made lovely beehives using stamps and paint, the Bananas made cute glove elephants using felt and stuffing and the Strawberries made a mini zoo by rolling paper into animal body parts!
The most awaited part of the party was the great Egg Hunt! We got a phone call from the Easter Bunny who told us that he hid a lot of eggs with special surprises in a nearby park! That was definitely the most exciting part of the day!
Besides having lots of Easter fun, the children also had a chance to peel a big bamboo shoot (takenoko) brought to school by Yoshiko-sensei. It got smaller and smaller with every layer peeled off and many students were very intrigued by its smell.
