“Mouse Trap”

パラシュートを使ったチームビルディング活動、その名も「マウス・トラップ(=ネズミ捕り)」。 G7・G8の生徒たちが力を合わせて、追いかけるネコから逃げるネズミを守りました。 共に汗を流し、思いっきり笑い合ったあとには、強い絆が生まれました。   The grade 7 and 8 classes joined together for teambuilding activities during homeroom. The students played a parachute game called “Mouse Trap”. The goal was to work together to protect a mouse running under the parachute from the hunting cat on top of the parachute. They built closer relationships and had …

Fantastic arts!

8年生の美術と科学の授業で、素晴らしい作品が出来ました!! 美術クラスでは、自画像の制作に取り組みました。 練習段階では、課題の写真から『明暗法』の技術を学び、 次に自分の写真から、白黒の濃淡を読み取って、セルフポートレートを完成させました。 「目や歯のバランスが難しかった!」「髪の部分は描きやすかった!」などなど いろんな感想がありましたが、自分では気づいていない表情の発見もあったようですね。 科学クラスでは、『細胞』の作成です。 目にすることのない小さな世界を、いろいろな素材を使って表現しています。 カラフルに彩色された細胞たち。ちょっと美味しそうにも見えますね!   G8 students made up the fantastic art works! In the art class, they learned “shading” and drew their self-portraits. Another art work is in the science class. They tried to get into the microcosmos and expressed the cells with colored cray.
