Thanksgiving!

During the month of November Americans celebrate how the English travelled to America and encountered strife before being rescued by the native Indians and subsequently taking the land for themselves. This is the holiday of Thanksgiving. We decided to celebrate this holiday too in which families gather together and have a big feast as a reminder for what the native Indians gifted their ancestors.

Halloween!

Hello and welcome to this week’s monthly special lesson blog!

 

Well, there could only be one thing this month is about – Halloween! On Thursday this week Sunrise had our scary, scary Halloween party! Everyone dressed up in their wonderful costumes and had a wonderful fashion parade. Then we went down to Okano park where, helped by some wonderfully kind parents, we had a fantastic stamp rally. There, the Sunrise kids also got some delicious treats and fun toys to play with.

 

All-in-all it was a brilliant day for everyone. We especially would like to thank the parents and friends who helped us out on the big day. Your help is truly appreciated!

Summer Pool Time!

Hello everyone and welcome to the monthly blog for August!

It’s been a very busy month with seasonal school and summer school but we found enough time to get outside and have some splashing good fun! Which brings us onto the topic for this month, POOL TIME!

Yes, we had a heap of fun playing in the pool and simply playing with water. So let’s get right into it.

IMG_5366

The older kids first tried jumping over a bar. This was to provide confidence when getting wet and to improve jumping ability.

IMG_5368

This exercise really caused a splash with everyone!

IMG_5372

But then they tried swimming UNDER the bar! A little more challenging, but much more rewarding.

Some managed to swim even in such shallow water!

IMG_5345

The caterpillars also had some serious fun with all the toys!

IMG_5339

And the little caterpillars LOVED getting the teachers wet!

IMG_5258

These Renaissance lessons gave the Shiny Butterflies all the skills they needed for our Sunrise pool days.

IMG_5279

And hopefully they can be put to use outside of the school too.

 

IMG_5242

Even the seasonal school kids had a blast getting drenched splashing away!

 

Well that concludes our summer, Sunrise story for this month. It was busy, but exceptionally fun! Throw in the summer holiday and that is a recipe for best month of the year! We hope you had as much fun as we did and look forward to September!

Shaved Ice Party!

Hello and welcome to this month’s special lesson blog!

 

It was summer this month so to celebrate the hot days finally arriving Sunrise had a wonderful shaved ice party! Before the big day we practiced hard on what to say and how to ask for some shaved ice. But not only that, we also learned a little bit about shopping and how to buy things.

 

Then, the big day rolled around! We were all able to eat some cool and refreshing shaved ice with a choice of three delicious flavors (blue Hawaii, melon and strawberry.) We had a great time showing off how our tongues changed color when we ate the delicious treat – all in all it was a wonderful day that was enjoyed by all!

Planting!

Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s special lesson blog! This month we’ll be taking a look at what all the classes planted in their pots. So let’s get to it!

Here at Sunrise, we’re not just interested in the development and growth of the children but the growth of things around us. We notice the changes in the flowers and trees around us but rarely stop to observe exactly what is happening. From May, we like to plant seeds and see the process in which the seeds develop into flowers and various fruits and vegetables.

IMG_3484

We start with a tiny seed.

IMG_3476

We put that seed into some soil.

IMG_3483

We give it some water.

IMG_3490

We then pose for a photo while wait to see how the seed grows!

IMG_3504

Sometimes you need to start with a smaller pot and less soil.

IMG_3510 star edit

Sometimes you need a bigger pot with more soil.

IMG_3531

But in all cases, you need lots of love.

So that’s it from us. We look forward to seeing how all of our plants grow and we hope you enjoy seeing how well we take care of them. Until next time, happy growing!

Easter Party!!!

Hello and welcome to April’s special lesson blog!

This month everyone at Sunrise put lots and lots of work into preparing for our big Easter party! In the afternoons leading up to the big day, the Fluttery Butterflies (with the help of the Shinies) made beautiful rabbit hats for the entire school to wear. We cut, glued, stapled and learned how to tie two rubber bands together – all very useful new skills! During the week, each class also made their own Easter baskets to put any eggs they found at the party in them. It was lots of work but lots of fun too!

Finally the big day arrived! The Sunrise kids were split into two teams and each team hid their eggs in either Clover or Daisy room. Then the teams switched classrooms and searched high and low for any eggs they could find! It was brilliant fun and at the end of the day each team came away with one victory.

But when we were searching we found some special eggs too! Who could have hidden them in the room? And inside the eggs was a picture of one of the cupboards in Violet room. What was going on???

There was nothing to do but investigate! The Sunrise kids all went into Violet room and, inside the cupboard, they found a delicious stash of eggs, biscuits and candy – all left courtesy of the Easter Bunny! We certainly enjoyed eating them after lunch!

Afterwards we went to the park where we had a great time doing a bunny race. Everyone put in lots of cute effort as we hopped our way across the park.

Performance Day Event

Hello and welcome to this month’s special lesson!

Getting ready for the show!

A classic tale

A classic tale

Performance Day is a big deal, here at Sunrise International School. In Japan, it is often called Tanoshimikai, which roughly translates to “Fun Time Party”, which is fairly accurate. While Performance Day is a big event, that we practice hard for, we still have a fun time practicing for it, and an even greater time with the actual performance!

With their parents coming to the event, the students were very excited and gave their best performance they could. While lines were forgotten and beats to dancing were missed, it was still a great performance that everyone loved! With so many different performances, such as dances, songs, instrumental playing and theatrical plays, the event was outstanding, with friends and family very proud of the students for their special performances.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!!!

We made it into 2019 and that means we’re nearing the end of the 2018 school year. But that we’re not quite there yet so we need to stay busy and finish the last couple of months strong!

We started the month (and the year) by talking about and depicting our adventures from the winter holiday. Some of us went to shrines, some of us watched fireworks and some of us even went camping! But no matter what we did, we all had lot’s of fun! So let’s see what some of us did.

FB Winter Holiday
A trip to see grandpa and grandma led to receiving otoshidama!

A camping trip led to making new friends and building a snowman!

So there you have it. A wonderful holiday spent doing all manner of things. We also started performance day practice but that’s a secret.
