Pre-1st Graders Have Fun Walking to Kinuta Park!

Pre-1st Graders Have Fun Walking to Kinuta Park!

The Pre-1st graders enjoyed their walk to Kinuta Park. 

Yesterday, the pre-first graders walked to, and played at Kinuta park! 

Although the walk to Kinuta park from Seisen may seem like a big challenge for the pre-first graders, the students did not seem bothered by the walk, but instead, seemed excited! 

During the walk, a high school leader was in charge of up to 4 students, with 3 teachers spread across the group as well. The group walked closely together, stopping at each stoplight and crossing as a group, with the children’s arms’ raised. Many students talked to each other and their leaders on the way to the park, and many also enjoyed the walk by singing with each other. The students sung songs that they learned in school, as well as the song, Sanpo (A walk), from “My Neighbor Totoro”, that includes the line, 「歩くの大好き」which translates to, I love walking! One of the students said, “The walk was really fun! It wasn’t long! I liked when I was singing!” 

When the students arrived at Kinuta Park, they immediately spotted the play ground, and started to run towards the fun! When playing, the students had a lot of energy, and ran around and played games with their classmates, only stopping to drink some water! 

Although the pre-first graders took the bus back to Seisen, they were still filled with spirit, and did not want to leave the park! Walking to Kinuta park is really not a big deal, and shouldn’t be something to worry about! The students were able to do something new, instead of always traveling with the bus, and were able to enjoy their afternoon at Kinuta park. Furthermore, walking to Kinuta park through sports camp is truly the first step towards the students being stronger and will help them as they enter first grade!
