What a great start to our Summer Program!

We began the day with a walk up the hill our school to have morning tea. The weather was perfect, the view across the Matsumoto valley was clear, and the forest was so cool. Students also enjoyed looking at many things along the way including delicious grapes on the vine. We showed respect by greeting the people who were working under there.

When we got back to school we stopped at the back of the ISN building and watched the sparrows feeding their babies. They were so cute. Students guessed that there were about 3 or 4 baby birds in the little nest.

After lunch we painted a mural with our feet. We took off our shoes and socks and put our feet in green, orange and blue paint then walked across large sheets of paper. Everyone’s foot prints made nice patterns. We imagined they were “Dinosaur Footprints”. We will write something about this mural next week.

Due to the hot days we have moved our exercise track to a shady section next to the hill. It is wonderful that the students can use this area which stays cool till about 10am every morning. Students are enjoying their jogging without the heat of the sun.

 

以下日本語訳

丘の上までお散歩に行き、皆でおやつを食べるところから一日が始まりました。天気にも恵まれ、木々の中はとても涼しく、松本平を見渡す景色もとても綺麗でした。お散歩の途中、つるになってりるブドウや色々な物を見て楽しんだり、スクールに戻り校舎の裏で立ち止まると、親ツバメが雛にエサをあげる可愛らしい姿を見る事も出来ました。子どもたちは巣の中に雛が何匹いるかな?と話していました。

昼食の後は足を使ってペイントをしました。素足になり、緑、オレンジ、青の絵の具を足の裏に塗り、大きな紙の上を絵の具を塗った足で歩きました。皆の足型が素敵な模様となり、子どもたちは出来上がった作品を「恐竜の足跡」と想像を膨らましていました。

暑い日が続き、日課であるエクササイズの実施を日陰へと移動しました。10時まで涼しいこのエリアで、子どもたちは照り付ける太陽の日差しから逃れジョギングを楽しんでいます。
