Rounding the corner of the final lap

Winter Sports Day was a success today!

Every morning at International Language House, we do running practice after our morning taiso routines. But this past month, we have been doing a little extra running to get ready for the big day.

It was a little chilly in Shin-Yokohama park, but we warmed up quickly after our first few meters.

As all our volunteer mamas and teachers ran alongside the kids, we saw so many runners trying their hardest! Thank you to everyone who came to cheer us on throughout the course.

Our top winners from each class were announced after arriving back at the kindergarten, receiving a trophy per winner, as well as badges for the rest of us.

We are so proud of all our kids today for doing their best!

Sports Day Prep!

Sports Day Prep!

Sports Day is next month! We have started to prepare in various ways; running, jumping, balancing, drawing, cheering, etc.

This time of year is when every child’s athletic strengths and weaknesses come out for us all to see! These qualities, as well as responsibility and leadership, were very important for choosing a captain.

Sports Day is a unique Japanese concept to our English teachers. It has been fun to think about games from a foreign perspective! We are all looking forward to it.

Until next month, may we continue to have lots of successful practice!
