Kinder Class Halloween Party (Ania)

With the end of October came something everybody was looking forward to all month long; the Halloween party!

Everybody came to school wearing cute, cool and most of all really amazing costumes. We had superheroes, princesses, cartoon characters, officers, wizards and even dinosaurs!

We sang a special Halloween song: “I’m a Crazy Witch”.
The children loved to do gestures of all yucky things that we put in the crazy witch’s magic cauldron!
“I will give you cobwebs, boogers, eyeballs, wool of bats…”

The very first activity that we had after the song was making two Jack o-Lanterns. We scooped out two big pumpkins, drew faces on them and decorated them with markers!
The teachers did the carving!

After our Jack o-Lanterns were made it was time for a little Halloween cooking. We made sweet mashed pumpkin cookie monsters. The children really liked them!

Next was everyone’s favourite part: Trick or Treating!
We went around Higashi Ikebukuro and collected candy from many places: the fire station, the parents at the school entrance and in a park, the Century 21 shop and the Community Center.
Trick or treat! Trick or treat! Give me something good to eat!

After coming back to the school, we had lunch! Everybody enjoyed eating and talking with friends while wearing their costumes.

After lunch, it was time for games! We played a Halloween monsters ball shooting game! The children had to knock off bottles with Halloween characters to get points. It was a lot of excitement!

We also had the Monster Box touch and feel game. Some friends were a little scared to touch things in the box without seeing them but princess Chikako was very convincing; she promised that nothing bad will happen and, of course, princesses never lie!

After the games, it was time to go home. This year’s Halloween was so fun! Everybody was very excited to get a little present from the school: a vampire whistle!

All 25 kids whistling at the same time might be a bit noisy but the ears of our teachers are well-trained for this kind of situation and nobody ended up in the hospital half-deaf ;).

Halloween is fun!

Kinder Class in October (Ania)

October has become a tradition of Magic School lessons for our Kinder Class.
This year it was the third time that we enjoyed studying magic spells, making magic potions, mixing elements of alchemy and discussing different kinds of magical creatures.

Just like every year, the students got sorted to four magic houses:
Riddlemere: the Sphinx house, for knowledge-thirsty and hard-working kids
Coralin: the Mermaid house, for playful, funny and outgoing kids
Whitewood: the Unicorn house, for kind hearted and helpful kids
Dragonhide: the Dragon House, for strong and brave kids.

Of course, all of our children have all of the aforementioned traits;
they are smart, fun, kind and strong!
However, putting them into mixed-age groups like these is a great tool to teach them team work, caring for younger friends and healthy competition.

Right after being sorted to their houses, the children visited our Magic Wand Shop and chose a wand that would become their partner in the upcoming magical adventures.

There were four kinds of wands to choose:
White– great for healing magic
Brown– great for nature spells
Dark Brown– great for fixing problems
Black– great for fighting bad creatures.

During this Magical Semester, we got to study about and discuss various magical creatures; merfolk, fairies and pixies, unicorns, phoenixes, dragons, sphinxes, elves, dwarves and many more!

Each Study of Magical Creatures lesson was based on certain habitats; forests, mountains, oceans, cities, deserts and countries around the world. We learnt about fantastic beings from Japan, Korea, China, America, Poland and India!

Each Study of Magical Creatures lesson also ended with a mission during which we had to learn and use a magic spell. We fought with a kraken, decoded hieroglyphics to solve Sphinx riddles, calmed down an angry ghost, casted a truth-telling spell on a cunning doppelganger who turned into Chikako, put a dragon to sleep, cooled down a burning hot feather of a phoenix, healed poisoned-by-a-bad-potion Ania and communicated with a Computer Wizard through magic!

We even fought with Bad Wizard, who was the reason of all the mysterious happenings in Feinshun! He was very strong and very naughty and he even drank a face-changing potion to look like Shingo, but we found out about his trick and defeated him! He might be strong but we are stronger because we have the power of friendship!

We made glowing fairy jars to attract fairies to our school! We made mermaid water candy and magic crystals! We also prepared many various potions, the most popular one being a protection potion for a baby unicorn.

We studied ancient Viking Runes: a secret alphabet of Wizards. The youngest students learnt to write single runes and, later, their names. The older kids practiced writing and reading names of magical creatures.

This year’s magic school was super fun! We can’t wait for another magical semester next year!

Yoshikoのファンシャイン日記 〜 pre class 〜

Halloween songが大好きなpumpkinさんは、MonsterやPiratesなどに大変身!
子どもたちは「Go a way !」と大きな声で退治をしました

しばらく悩んでから、「l like banana!」「I like cookie!」とニコニコ笑顔で教えてくれました😃

After class by ( Nida)

First of all, it is very encouraging to see that though kids are coming to after school tired,
 they get all excited to learn English in a fun way.

The month of October was all about “Halloween” and “Transportation” for the after school kids. They learnt a couple of songs about the themes, namely “Knock Knock Who Are You” and “Go Away.”




We did lots of activities from the book. Kids craft included Halloween craft, wheel craft.

The Show and Tell activities were loved by the kids.

The phonics activities were fun, and kids learnt phonics from Q To S
