Wednesday the 25th

Today was a fairly normal day here at Wanaka, When the kids first arrive they usally play with the train set or the blocks, and they all say `hello` to me when I arrive.

Then it is clean up time,  the kid put away all the toys and go to the class room ready for morning lessons, after lessons have finished, we will either go to the park or have a long walk.

Today we went for a walk as one of the students was getting picked up early. Then it is time to get back to school for lunch, And once lunch is finished it more play time before story time and nap time. just a normal day at Wakaba.

Today we had another visitor come and join us and watch our lesson, our kids did well on their lessons and put on a good show for the guests too, thou it is hard to keep them focused when new people are far more interesting than thier boring old teacher. Afterwards we when to the park, the weather was a bit cloudy, but warm. I think it is the first time I have been to the park without my puffy jacket and woolly hat. Bring on Spring!!!!

こんにちは。みんな元気ですか? 今日も寒かったですね。

今日はハローソングから始まって、お天気の歌、ジョリーフォニックスの基礎の全部の歌をやりました。子供たちはこの歌が大好きです。  そして新しい言葉も習いました。

We had just the younger kids today, so we went back to the beginning of the basic phonics sounds, taking many breaks and going back to lessons.

It seemed a nice sunny day, so we went of a walk around the neighbourhood, but when we got to the top of a hill it got very very windy.



Wednesday the 18th

Yay! the sun has come back, so we could venture down to the park and play on the swings, it was still abit wet to play in the sandpit and on the slide thou. never mind we had fun anyway.

But soon we are back at school doing our lesson, the older kids know the phonics sounds very well, so today we gave special attention to the others to help them along.

Oh no!  it was a bit wet today, so we can`t go out to play.

Well, we will just have to have extra story time instead.

The kids were happy to listen to a few extra books and play inside, hopefully the weather will clear up tomorrow so we may go to the park.

Well it does feel like spring has arrived. The weather today was warm and sunny, what a great day for playing in the park with all our friends.

All the kids had lots of fun running around.

We also had a couple of visitors today a young boy and his mum.

He was really good when he joined in on our lesson, he repeated the phonic sound really well, so we hope he will come and join us at Wakaba.


 今日は春が来たような日でしたね。 暖かくて太陽がいっぱいのこんな日は公園で遊ぶのにもってこいの日です。




Tuesday the 10th

We had a little visitor today, she was shy and quite, but all the kid were very nice, and lesson went well.

The day was a bit sunny to begin with so we started off towards the park, it was very cold thou, and it started to snow on the way,

so we just had a little walk instead, and then headed back to school for more play time and lunch.
