For the 2019 school year, there will be 28 6th graders (1 class). The Senshu Elementary School (Principal Mr. Tomita and 6th grade homeroom teacher Mr. Iohara), our committee, and Yokohama National University (Associate Prof. Morita and Fujioka) discussed the content and schedule of classes from April, and we finally decided to increase the class sessions and make the regional study more active. 

The 6th graders requested to learn about disasters and disaster prevention in the Taya area, so we conducted a pre-learning class on "How to think about disasters due to geographical features & cultural heritage?"  Then, we created a three-dimensional disaster damage model with disaster damage information of the region on the topographic model created by the 2017 graduates.
