Christmas Day!!

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to Sunrise monthly ‘December’ blog!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas! We are so excited to share with you this month’s events and activities! We have to say, December is one of our favorite months, probably because Christmas is in December and it’s our favorite holiday as well.

As the weather gets colder, everyone gets even more excited waiting for Christmas to come! But while everyone is waiting, we did a lot of crafts to help make the school more festive!

The Caterpillars made some Snowman’s hat and Christmas tree

THANKSGIVING PARTY

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our monthly blog of November!

On November we usually celebrate fall, gratitude, crunchy leaves, golden light, and Thanksgiving. And Yes! This time we had the Thanksgiving party!

Even with all the chaos 2020 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Here are to another year of giving thanks for all of the wonderful blessings our Sunrise Kids has experienced.

Music Time!

October – Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone!

 

Welcome back to the monthly blog of October.

 

When we think of October, there’s only one event everyone is excited about! And of course, it’s Halloween!

 
It is the only month when you can see everywhere lots of jack-o-lanterns, spider webs and even monsters! The most special thing in Halloween is that everyone can wear any costumes and can become anything they want to be. It doesn’t need to be scary, you could even be a superhero!

 

Before the October ended, everyone celebrated Halloween and had a big party altogether. We all played and sang our favorite Halloween songs. And all the Caterpillars, Butterflies and, even the teachers, did a Halloween fashion show and had the chance to walk on the runway and do their scariest or cutest poses!

After the fashion show, we all went to the park and did trick or treating! Everyone was excited to go look for different monsters to get their treats! A lot of parents also joined the party and made all the kids very happy.

August – Hot Summer Days

Hello Everyone!

As the summer in Japan gets hotter and hotter, everyone here in Sunrise has found ways to enjoy this hot summer.

 

The Caterpillars celebrated their hot summer by having a Shaved Ice Party!

After the summer vacation, the Butterflies were so surprised to come back and see their space crafts hanging in the Sunflower room!

June – Father’s Day

Hello everyone!

 

Welcome to the monthly blog of June.

 

June is a special month where we celebrate our dads through Father’s Day. This month, everyone in Sunrise made a special gift for our dads and talked about the things they do for us. We even sang a Father’s Day song, ‘I love him and he loves me too and daddy is his name, oh! D-A-D-D-Y.’ Everyone had lots of fun making crafts and singing for our dads!

 

 

The Caterpillars worked really hard to make tie crafts for their dads!

Graduation!

Hello and welcome to the final special lesson blog for this year – and Mr. Martin’s final blog as a Sunrise teacher!

Well, it being March there was only one thing that this blog could be about – graduation! The Fluttery Butterflies prepared well all through March towards their final, special day. They learned their speeches, the practiced the songs (in English and in Japanese!) and they learned where to stand and, most importantly, how to sit nicely! It was a wonderful day for everyone involved and all the Sunrise teachers would like to thank the parents who came along to make the day so special.

We’d also like to give a special big thank you to the parents for the events they planned after the official graduation ceremony. The quiz, songs, and improvised dancing (thank you Ishin!) was lots and lots of fun.

And from me, Mr Martin, I would like to thank the parents, teachers and of course Sunrise Kids who made the last three years so memorable. I wish you all the best for the future.
