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!

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!

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!

February has ended and the rainy month of March is now upon us. Let us reflect on all the great times we had this February. On the 22nd of February, we had the long awaited for… Performance Day event!

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.

A trip to see grandpa and grandma led to receiving otoshidama!

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.

Christmas!

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

This month at Sunrise we’ve been focused one very special day – Christmas! We’ve been working hard learning some wonderful songs, we’ve made some beautiful craft and some stunning hats! It was lots of work heading into the big day but we’re pleased to say that everything came together superbly.

And what could be better on Christmas than a special visit from the big man himself – Santa! Everyone here was thrilled when he arrived and shared some beautiful presents with us all!

We hope you had a great Christmas too and enjoy a well-earned winter break!

Thanksgiving Party!

Hello and welcome to this month’s special lesson!

 

 

November has finally come to an end and now Christmas is right around the corner. Although November has finished, we still have some amazing memories from this month, especially our amazing Thanksgiving Party!

 

For those of you, who are not familiar with Thanksgiving Day, it is a special holiday in the United States of America, where we gather together with all our friends and family, join together for a huge feast, and give thanks for all the good things we have in our life. This tradition stems all the way back, when pilgrims from Europe came to North America, and were saved by the Native Americans, by helping the pilgrims survive the harsh winter. Afterwards, the pilgrims and Native Americans gathered together with their friends and family, and had a large feast together, using all the different foods they grew as well as any fish or meat they caught. The reason they had this feast was to “Give Thanks” for helping each other and was celebrated each year, usually before Winter, where food was harvested/hunted, and became the holiday Thanksgiving.

We carry on this tradition each year now, as Thanksgiving Day. Since the students are thankful for so many things, we decided to have our own Thanksgiving party here in Japan, so the students can talk about what they are thankful for, as well as have a nice meal together with friends.
