Well done to all our third grade junior high school students who passed their exams!
Once again, 100% of our students have graduated and enrolled into high school!
Some students worked hard all year round and some students needed a last push in the final months.
Good luck to them all in their lives in high school!
It's great to see students learn something new. Sometimes it's a challenge for them but when they finally understand, it makes a teacher feel warm inside.
It's a rare case when students appreciate the work you do for them. So when my 2nd grade student Renka knitted a glasses holder for me, I was on top of the world.
She has been practising her knitting at after school club and has brought it to Aya School sometimes. I couldn't believe a 7 year old could knit. I definitely can't!
Here is a photo. Isn't it amazing!!
Inside is very cosy and warm. The furniture and decorations are unique and interesting.
As well as a cafe, she sells antiques, handmade accessories made by herself, handmade clothes made by her sister, and organic beauty products made by her friend.
It is so interesting that it isn't something you would expect in Tsuru, more like something on the back roads of Harajuku or Meguro.
I had a soya-milk chai which was delicious.
As well as coffee, hot chocolates, and chai, there are are many herbal teas available.
If you like relaxing in cafés please check it out!
Here is her blog if you want to see any information about the cafe:
We ate a 'Full English Breakfast' on Christmas morning. It is a typical English breakfast people often eat at the weekends. It includes sausages, bacon, eggs, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, and toast. Yummy and greasy!
This was our Christmas dinner. There were two roast meats, turkey and ham. And lots of vegetables, roast potatoes, boiled carrots, boiled sprouts (mini cabbages), roast parsnips, boiled broccoli, and leaks with cheese. Also the stuffing from the turkey.
On another day we had roast lamb. This is a photo of it in the roasting dish. Soooo delicious!! My favourite.
something we ate a lot of while we were there was CHEESE! This is the dining table before a lots of our meals. Dried hams and salamis. Many different cheeses. Olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Also, a meat pie.
Hope you all enjoyed that. It's not all traditional English food but its traditional for my family, and in the UK every family is different.
