Summer has ended and our students are happy to be back at school!
We have also welcomed some new friends to school!
We are playing outside…
and learning a lot inside as well!
Let’s have a great semester together!
This year at Beanstalk’s summer school the students learned a lot about natural science.
We covered space and planets.
Geology and how it affects our planet.
And oceanography, learning about the ocean and the creatures that live there.
Many questions were answered and many more asked.
Summer school has been a lot of fun and the students got to learn a lot more about not only the world we live on but our whole universe.
We look forward to seeing all our friends again at Summer School next year!
The last week of summer school had the students learning about oceanography.
We learned about many creatures that live the ocean.
Our final trip of summer school was to Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium.
We got to see many interesting creatures and learn a bit more about how they live.
On the last day of summer school we had a BBQ.
All the students helped to prepare the food.
The students learned about geology in the third week of summer school.
One of the topics was volcanoes and we set up a demonstration of how they work.
During the third week we got to visit Gamagori Inochino Umi science museum.
We took a guided tour looking at fossils showing the origins of the Earth.
We saw many examples of rock formations showing how Earth has evolved.
After the tour we went for lunch at a seaside Spanish restaurant.
We had a high quality pasta with salad and played in the spacious outdoor garden.
After lunch we visited a fantasy museum following a planned path.
The students each got a unique shell reward at the end of the museum.
Our summer camping trip was at Tsukiyodani – Fureaino Sato.
After the long drive from Beanstalk we stopped at Tachibanaya Ryokan for lunch.
We went to catch fish after lunch.
We caught so many and had them in a BBQ.
At the end of the evening we sat around a camp fire listening to stories, singing and dancing.
Our next day started off with a big breakfast and a few games.
Later that day we made shaved ice and had ice cream.
We had a great time at summer camp.
