On October 28th, we had our annual Halloween party with the other ALTs in Miyoshi City and Rachelle and Kaius.
We chose designs and carved three pumpkins.
The second years carved Charlie Brown and Snoopy pumpkin, and the first years carved a Minion pumpkin and a cat pumpkin. The third years have been very busy with entrance exams and job interviews, but they were able to party with us as well.
Now our pumpkins are in front of the school for all the students to see!
The welcome party was on July 1st. Tony 先生’s wife and son came to the party. His wife brought a cinnamon cake. It was so delicious, because she bakes very well.
Kaius (Tony 先生’s son) is so cute. He has blue eyes. They look like jewels.
After we finished eating snacks, we gave our self-introductions. Last, we took some pictures. It was a good memory.

We did a scavenger hunt. Everyone divided into four teams and looked for cards hidden somewhere in the school. Ten hints were written in English. If we understood the meaning of the hints, we went to the spot and wrote the name ofthe place on our paper. If all our answers were correct we could clear the game!!
It was difficult, because the hints were written in abstract English. So, we couldn’t easily find our teams cards. But we learned new English vocabulary. In the future we want to do more fun activities in English Club.

For this game we had to guess a word on a slip of paper. We played the game by either explaining a word in English, doing gestures, or drawing a picture and our team tried to guess the word.
This was the first time we all met. Our friendship grew through playing the game. Tony 先生 always thinks of interesting games.

Hello! We are the English Club. We do activities on Wednesdays. We usually start around 4 o’clock.
We play cards, gestures games, and Werewolf. We also watch English movies and hold parties.
For example, on Halloween we carve pumpkins and make jack-lanterns. At our Christmas party we exchange presents and last time we made tacos.
We are not good at speaking English, but we help each other and enjoy spending time together. Why don’t you enjoy learning English with us!

This year, our graduation party for the 3年生 was short because of the coronavirus. We gave flowers and cards with English writing. We talked about our favorite English club memories together. We will really miss our 3年生 members.
We had the Christmas party and farewell party for Shontea. We played games, exchanged presents and ate Tacos. Rachelle (Tony先生’s wife) made Christmas cake for everyone to enjoy.
In the English club, we love to party. Tony先生 and us celebrate a lot of different things every year. First is the Halloween party. We carve pumpkins into cute and scary characters. Other ALTs visit our school and help carve the pumpkins and speak with us in English. We also dress up in costumes. This year Kaius (Tony先生’s son) dressed up too!
