English physical education project
ROAD TO THE WORLD
We make a way in the world !!
High qualified international sports development!
Takayuki Fujimura, a representative of the current IGS Academy, has worked as a nursery teacher and physical education teacher at U.S. school facilities and international schools. Taking advantage of the international education I have cultivated over the years, I have started a program to teach physical education in English called "English Physical Education Project" in order to foster "communication skills", "self-improvement" and "ability to choose" which are thought to be insufficient for Japanese children. This project was also intended to provide "an opportunity" to go abroad using the "English" language as a tool.
In 2018, I received voices from many local governments and companies, and as part of the "Tokyo Olympics 2020 Children's Development Program" we started PR activities for "English Physical Education Project" in public gymnasiums and school facilities.
What is Physical Education Project ?
Improves the athletic ability of the “body”
Bring out the "individuality" that self-confidence develops
In "English communication" to fight in the world
You will acquire the "ability to choose" to live.
「IGS Method」x 「English」
It was developed based on the national standard of physical education curriculum approved by "SHAPE AMERICA (National Sports Sports Foundation)".
We will build a way of physical education and acquire "body", "individuality" and "ability to choose" in various athletic competitions that even beginners can enjoy. This is an original international sports education program aimed at academics.
IGS method standard
" HISPEC ''
Health : Improvement of "exercise ability"
Individuality : Knowing the "body"
Self-Esteem : Increase "self-affirmation"
Personality : Understanding each other with "individuality"
English Language : Learn "English Communication"
Choice of ability : Acquire "ability to choose"
With "Fun" and "Enjoy" as our motto
A high quality environment where you can learn English
All lessons are conducted in an English environment.
In addition to simply moving, the coach will give you "thoughts" in a quiz format.
Then, exercise while outputting by voice.
At first, we will give guidance using simple "English words", and as we get used to it, we will explain the reason and explain in "sentences".
What IGS is aiming for
Unleashing children's potential through English physical education at IGS Academy
We provide an environment where children can acquire "individuality," "confidence," and "ability to choose" at an early stage.
Furthermore, we take pride in our role to provide "triggers" to attract interest overseas in an English environment.
From there, we aim to produce many children overseas.
I believe that in the near future, IGS Academy will have human resources who can play an active role in the international community.
Long-term education method based on Western education
"Individuality" "Self-affirmation" "Ability to choose"
In principle, coaches do not have a competitive program in ranking. We will give guidance to praise each person without comparing with others. We have adopted a Western training system that gives various events and makes our strengths "like". In addition, in teaching skills, we will provide guidance that gives time and choices to make people think without giving answers, and develop their ability to solve problems.
IGS original physical education program
"Improvement of basic motor skills" "Chelen spirit"
We will carry out a wide variety of physical education activities conducted at overseas schools by theme. It also includes a program that incorporates a game format that allows you to enjoy exercising. Through physical education, while mainly developing "basic motor skills", we will learn the importance of friends and the spirit of challenge, and aim to improve the sense of accomplishment, self-expression, judgment, etc. in various events. ..
Learn English while having fun exercising
In principle, coaches do not provide guidance such as reading and writing. Give yourself time to think about what was asked in a quiz format. You can recognize English by moving your body while imagining what you output with your voice. From there, as you get used to it by eliminating "English allergies", your hearing will grow and you will be able to communicate in English.
10 Action Guidelines
These 10 articles are the action guidelines that our staff cherishes.
In addition to telling children in words, it is an action that they experience through lessons.
In early childhood education, we believe that the first priority is to provide an environment of various experiences.
If you are obsessed with one thing, it will be difficult for you to choose the best way for you in your future life in society. It is no exaggeration to say that if you have the ability to make choices, you can take a wide variety of actions when you enter society.
English physical education is not a training program that trains athletes.
Through various exercise programs, we will teach children with the hope that they will learn the "body" for living and that they will play an active role overseas with a communication tool called English.
It is a major premise to make it a fun lesson I will try to praise
We will try to create a lesson atmosphere where children can feel "fun" as if they said "play is something to say". However, let them understand that doing their best is "real fun" rather than just playing. I will keep in mind the lessons that are sharp even in a fun atmosphere.
Give time to set up "thoughts" and value free "speaking"
We will adopt a teaching method based on Western education unique to IGS Academy and actively accept free remarks. Instead of repeatedly returning "NO" and negative words to the words you say, I will try to use words that are returned with "advice and encouragement" at Encollage. However, rants are excluded.
"Do" and "Do not do" are self-judgment
I don't think it is education to force people to do it. You will "dislike" what is happening now.
As time goes by, I would like you to warmly watch over entering at your own timing.
While respecting the character of the child and giving it a free atmosphere, we will try to create a good atmosphere while being conscious of sharpness, such as presenting clear rules and sometimes giving strict guidance if there is something contrary to it.
"Points to give strict guidance" Abuse by words to others, obstruction during lessons, if you do not follow the rules in the facility
Q: Which outfit should I wear to participate?
A: There is no problem as long as it is easy to move. However, please remove the items with metal fittings.
Q: Why are you taking lessons barefoot?
A: The main reasons are to allow the toes to move freely, to grow the arch, and to activate the brain by stimulating the soles of the feet.
Q: Do you have what you need?
A: Water bottle, change of clothes (optional), towel * Available for purchase
Q: Is it possible to tour?
A: Due to space limitations, tours are basically not possible. However, we will set up a tour day once every two months. For tours, the maximum number of people per family is one. In addition, private language interferes with lessons and concentration on children, so please be kind to us.
Q: Both parents and children can't speak English, is that okay?
A: No problem at all.
In principle, instructions will be given in English during the lesson, but please be assured that we will follow up in Japanese until you get used to it for first-time children. Please be assured that all procedures and handouts are written in Japanese, and the staff will basically speak in Japanese with their parents.
Q: My child has a lot of shyness and location, can I participate?
A: No problem at all.
Every child starts by getting used to the environment little by little. Also, if you try to force yourself to participate from the beginning and dislike exercise and English, you will not have any children. As you gradually become accustomed to the facilities and coaches while observing the lessons, your child will naturally be able to participate enthusiastically. Please be assured that the coaches will take care of your child's personality and other factors.
Q: How is hygiene management done?
A: The staff carefully cleans and disinfects every day.
Facilities such as coats and tour spaces are cleaned daily to maintain a clean and comfortable space, and the equipment used during lessons is also sterilized daily. We also ask all visitors to cooperate in disinfecting their hands and wearing masks (depending on the situation).
Voice of parents
Please see the impressions received from the parents of the students who actually joined the academy.
IGS Social Contribution
English physical education is also active outside the Kanto prefecture in collaboration with each company as an infrastructure for international education.
With the support of local governments, we are also expanding business trip event activities at public school facilities.
In addition, at charity events, children will donate clothing that they no longer need.
