Teamwork – Shooting Star (9/21,22&24)

This week was short but special! 短かった1週間、でもスペシャルな1週間でもありました!

It has been a while since the last time we walked to the park. On Tuesday, We were so happy that we were able to go to the park again and enjoy the breezy weather and have fun with everyone.

コロナの感染拡大レベルが下がったので、火曜日は久々に公園へいきました。秋の空気を満喫しながら、皆とても楽しく遊びました♪

On Wednesday, the whole class went to the gym and enjoyed games that required teamwork. We divided them into 4: the cake group, the flower group, the ribbon group, and the butterfly group.

水曜日は体育館へ行き、ルールに従って、 ケーキグループ、お花グループ、リボングループ、ちょうちょうグループに分かれ チームでトライするゲームを楽しみました。

The first activity was group naming. To come up with a name for their group, each member needed to think of others’ choices too. They have learned here that not everything is about themselves, that they need to respect others’ wants and the decision of the majority too. まずは、自分たちのグループ名を決めをしました。自分が望んだグループ名ではなくても、多数決で他の多くのお友達が選んだ名前を尊重し、譲る事も学びました。

The second activity was to move as one. They acted like a train: The task was to keep each train standing and the key to do this one was to move as one. All of them did a great job and each member of the group exerted effort and contributed to the success of their team. 2つ目のアクティビティは、ひとつになって動くこと。列車のように動き、それぞれの列車を立たせておくこと、そのためには一つになって動くことが鍵となりました。グループの各メンバーが努力をして、チームの成功に貢献しました!

The next activity was a relay type of game, where each group lined up and raced one by one as they relay their ring to their teammates. In this game, they learned that one’s effort would contribute to the success of everyone. 次に、リレー形式で、リングを次の人に渡す為に全力で走りました。一人ひとりが真剣に走ることで、チームが勝つんだという事を体感しました。

Albeit it was their first time to be exposed to the concept of teamwork and its importance, they did good and were able to show good comprehension of the idea. It is our goal to incorporate more activities that require teamwork into our future lessons to get them ready for next year, which they will be using teamwork more. チームワークの概念とその重要性に初めて触れたにもかかわらず、皆とてもよく頑張りました。今後のレッスンでは、チームワークを必要とするアクティビティを多く取り入れ、チームワークをより活用することになる来年(年長クラス)に備えたいと思います。

On Friday, the Shooting star class enjoyed reading a new book called: What is out there? They love reading and discovering new words. 新しい本「What is out there?」を興味深々に読み、新しい単語を発見しました。

Also, this week marks the last week of the whole unit of inquiry for IB: Where we are in Place and Time. The students finished presenting in front of the class and flaunting their building made out of a tissue box. They presented what building they made, its type, the help we can get from it, and the rules in that building. ユニット「私達のいる場所と時間」についての活動は最後の週となりました。ティッシュボックスを使ったクラフトをみんなの前で一人ひとりプレゼンテーションしました。その建物はどんなタイプでなにを する所か、使用する場合のルールについても発表しました。

It was a 3 day hit fun for shooting star! We are looking forward to more next week! 今週は3日しかない短い週でしたが内容の濃い、楽しい週でした!来週も皆に会えるのを楽しみにしています♪

Have an invigorating weekend, everyone! さわやかな週末を!
