Setsubun


SETSUBUN

Last Friday was super exciting, though super scary for some of us.
Demons would be coming to school!

When we had all gathered in the big room, Kynan’s Mom explained how Setsubun came about and how Japanese people celebrate it.
Eri’s and Yuika’s Moms told us the Setsubun story in Japanese.
After the story it was craft time.

Ryusei’s Mom explained how the mask was to be assembled.
Once we had all found our tables, we started right away.
Many Moms and a Dad had come to volunteer and help us to make the masks.
It was fun.

K4 and K5 cut their own features, so they could make their masks even more impressive.
So far it wasn’t scary at all.
After the group photos we all sat down on one side of the classroom.
The Moms and Dad handed out roasted soya beans.
That was our ammo to fence off the demons.
Then it happened! The demons came!
They were swaying big clubs, one even a knobbed club! We threw our beans for dear life, while shouting,
“Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!” (Demons out! Good luck in!).
We were stronger than the demons and they left empty-handed.
No one got snatched, we were all safe.
Now we hope lots of good luck will come this year.

Mochitsuki お餅つき

On January 18th, we had Omochitsuki event at school.

It was a beautiful day, we steam Mochi rice and kneaded it.
Then it was time to Mochitsuki, pounding it into Mochi!

All the daddies, mommies, and children took turn to pound the mochi.
The Kine ( mochi tsuki hammer) was very heavy.

* all the foreign teachers and students called Kine, "Mochi Hammer", even I taught the name .

We had warm soft mochi with anko(read bean paste), kinako(soy bean powder), and soy sauce.
They were soooooo yummy!
Every one took mochi home to eat later or share with family.

Thank you for Shirai kome store! and Mr. and Ms. Shirai.

お餅つき

1月18日土曜日に餅つきをしました。

もち米を蒸して、蒸したてをちょっぴり味見。お醤油をかけて一口! うーん。おいしい!

まずはもち米がつぶれるまで、こねます。
これがなかなか大変な作業。
Tibor は初めてなのにとっても上手でした。

さあ、お餅つきの準備が整いました。
お父さん、お母さん、そして子どもたちが順番にお餅つき。
杵が重くてふらふらしている子も。
すごーく上手につけると音が違います!
手慣れたお母さんやお父さんもいらして、大助かり。

つきたてのお餅は温かくて柔らかくて、のびのび、もちもち。
自家製のあずき、オーガニックのきな粉、お醤油とのりで磯部餅、などにしていただきました。

たっくさん食べて、お土産もありました。
お家に帰ってまた楽しんでいただけたと思います。

白井米店様、白井様、本当にありがとうございました。

また、来年もやりたいな。

Sports day 2018

Ready, set, go!

Our annual Sports Day took place on Saturday November 17th.
Parents, grandparents, kids, siblings, and teachers gathered together with their red or blue shirts to cheer on their team and play together!

We started off with everybody dancing to the hot potato dance.
Shaking, hopping, and moving our body left and right to get us moving for the day.

Afterward, we started the event with mini relay races – which team is going to finish first! – sprinting towards the goal line, and wonderful performances done by Ladybugs, K3, K4 and K5.

K4 did an outstanding dance with colorful ribbons on their hands.
K5’s parachute dance was the most amazing we have seen!

Parents have also joined in the games together with their kids – as well as siblings and grandparents – and they had a great time playing together as a team.

Everyone had lots of fun playing together, and all the NWIS kids did such a magnificent job each and every one of them received a gold shiny medal and a cool jump rope!
What a wonderful event to have everyone gathered around and enjoy a Saturday morning.
