This year the Panda/ Penguin class made a woven wall hanging for Mother’s Day, this required a lot of hard work and patience. Clent, the owner, made wooden frame looms for us and the children did the weaving and chose all the colours themselves. We added Ironbeads making the word MOM using a heart as the O. I would like to thank my mother-in-law, Naomi, for donating a box of yarn, which gave us a variety of colours and textures to choose from. When we started this task I was a little worried that we may not have enough time to complete it but the children worked hard and we completed the task, the finished works are all unique and beautiful. I’m sure there are some happy mothers today.
This week we went to the big park, 宝塚中山五月台①公園, to enjoy the very large koi noburi which they put up in the park every year. We also returned to the ladybug park, 宝塚中山中央公園, for a picnic on Friday. The children took their koi noburi home for the holiday. I would like to wish all of the children of High Five a happy Children’s Day, and I will see you again on Wednesday next week, have fun.
