CLIL in 1st grade the other day

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:07

   Down below is other pictures of CLIL done the other day, about Sociology. Since they learned about “United Nations” in Japanese before, they searched and learned more deeply about UN, like Sustainable Development Goals: SDGs and Millennium Development Goals: MDGs in English.
   Through this CLIL program, students learned a lot in a year, and they are getting better on debating in English and making an understandable presentation from what they researched.

CLIL in 1st grade

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 12:36

   There were two CLIL classes held on February 16th.
   One was Health Science, in the theme of “Prevention for Infectious Diseases”. Since there were so many technical words, like name of the diseases, it was very hard to make the presentation more understandable. But everyone did a great job by using pictures and graphs in the presentation. In the end of the class, the subject’s teacher, who does not normally use English, made a comment in English. Sometimes looking at the crib sheet, Mr. Tatsuno talked in a loud and strong voice, so his English words went straight into students’ heart.
   The other class was Sociology, and students learned about “United Nations”. Mr. Toyoshima, Sociology teacher, also talked at the end. His talk was so enthusiastic, students were amazed and the whole class heated up. We will never forget the abbreviated name of The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO, doesn’t start with UN! (In Japanese, it starts from UN (Kokuren), but not in English!)

Classroom visitations in Ehime Prefectural Meeting of Education

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 12:31

   On February 15th, the Ehime Prefectural Meeting of Education was held at our school, so the prefectural governor Mr. Nakamura and members of the Ehime Prefectural Board of Education, including the chairman, visited our school. Before the meeting, there was a short period of time for guests to look around and see classes. There were 10 classes to see, and some seemed to be interesting for them. They stopped at the class using tablet device for communicating with foreign student in Ehime University, or the class using electronic blackboard which has just arrived this term, or CLIL learning Japanese in English! When they arrived at the arena, where there was a PE class doing Badminton, the governor suddenly joined in and did some rally with students!

5th International Day event

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 10:28

   Our SGH club members had a 5th International Day event. They welcomed Barnard Family from Uganda, on February 12th to our school. Since Matsuyama Higashi High School is sending students to Uganda once a year for field work, students introduced the field work activities. Also, they listened to Mr. and Mrs. Barnard about Uganda and WATOTO, a holistic care program that was initiated as a response to the overwhelming number of orphaned Children and vulnerable women in Uganda. Two children, about the age of kinder garden and elementary school, was so energetic, students played Japanese card game, Karuta, together.
   We think it is very important to get in touch with foreign people and listen to the real used English, because it is a great chance to get new discoveries and information. Hope more and more students will join to these events.

Fair trade Valentine

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 10:40

   On February 10th, SGH club members planned and did a fair trade event for Valentine’s Day. All of the chocolates sold so very quickly during lunch time! We feel happy to see students buying fair trade chocolates because it means that those who bought the chocolates understood the leaflet the SGH club students handed out before. They explained the meaning and the system of fair trade. Let’s try to do what we can, one by one for the International Cooperation!

Attending at Model United Nations in Tamagawa

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:24

   On Feb 4th and 5th, 6 members of our SGH club joined to the Tamagawa Model United Nations at the Tamagawa Academy in Tokyo. (As many of you know, Model United Nations is a simulation of United Nations to develop negotiation skill and knowledge about International Problems by participating as a representative of country to argue, negotiate, and adopt a resolution.)
   The first day was listening to people working at International Societies, like Ms. Akiko Taguchi, the director of the ILO Office for Japan. It was very exciting and able to learn a lot. The Second day was the main event, having a Model United Nations. This year’s theme was to “child labor”, and our students stand as a representative of Columbia and Iraq. We learned the difficulty of making an agreement within a different country’s opinions because of different backgrounds. It was also hard to negotiate with such different countries.

Saying good bye to Miss Bam

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:20

   February 2nd was the last day for Miss Bam since she is going back to her home town in Thai. She talked her last message and good bye at the class meeting. It’s been almost a year studying with her, so it is very sad to say good bye. But also, we do wish her good luck so I want to send her off with a smile.

   Miss Bam! We miss you! Hope you never forget Matsuyama Higashi!
