EFL Barrier Game on the Topic of Clothes (October 2017)


Dear VCIS ep1 red parents and guardians,

This is week 21 for the pupils of EP1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

VCIS THAI LOGO

The YouTube video below shows the ep1 red children taking part in an extremely useful and fun activity referred to as a barrier game.

A barrier game is essentially a pair based communicative activity which allows each member of a pair to either ask or answer specific questions in order to gain specific information for the game to progress.

A barrier game usually focuses on spoken language and active listening comprehension although this particular barrier game also required a degree of reading, colouring in and a significant amount of writing.

This barrier game focused on 6 items of clothing, 6 different colours, the target word of ‘wearing’ and the indefinite article a.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

Once the children had completed the barrier game they then went on to complete the exercise by writing up the sentences they had heard or spoken as responses.

20171010_094921[1]20171010_094934[1]

During activities like this there is always a high degree of scaffolding available for those pupils who require it. For example during this exercise the colour words were typed on the worksheets in the colour they spelt. The clothing words were written on two classroom whiteboards with the drawings of the items of clothing next to them. Also more ‘experienced’ children were intentionally paired with those pupils whom would benefit from their assistance.

I hope you enjoy the video!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Silhouette Paintings (2017)


Dear VCIS ep1 red parents and guardians,

Today the ep1 red children here at Varee Chiangmai International School had their final Art class of the academic year.

VCIS THAI LOGO

I will not be teaching my pupils Art next term as they will be learning Thai Dance.

The children created beautiful sunset silhouette paintings using only the colours red, yellow and black.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

Black is a very important colour and using bright colours along with it allows the background of a painting to be emphasised.

Every one of my pupils is extremely talented and I am extremely proud of them all.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Maths Practical on Capacity (September 2017)


Dear EP1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

Below are a few images of the final maths lesson this term.

Image result for CAPACITY CLIPART

All of the children in ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School were asked to bring in a plastic or metal container and they were then put into small groups.

VCIS THAI LOGO

They were first asked to estimate and write down the predicted capacities of their own containers and of their group members too.

VCIS ENGLISH LOGO

The children even tried to act out and visualise how many cups of water it would take to fill the various containers.

(PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGES TO MAKE THEM BIGGER.)

ESTIMATING

The standard by which to measure the various capacities were the Varee Chiangmai International School cups, as they are all the same size.

metal-cup



ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS

The ep1 red children then went outside to actually measure and record the capacities of their own containers and those of their group members.

The children shared the data, to find out whose container held the least and the most in our class and to see whether their initial estimates were close to their actual measurements.

I hope you enjoy the images.

Fun was definitely had by all!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
