Weeks 6 to 8 in EP1 RED (July 2012)

varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Here are some of the many varied classes your children took part in during weeks 6, 7 and 8 here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

In social the children are seen in the images below revising the symbols which are associated with some of the major faiths of the world.

The children each had a mini-whiteboard and were asked to draw the symbol of a certain faith.

The mini-whiteboards are an invaluable educational resource and can be used in a multitude of different ways.

The children of EP1 Red really love it when they are asked to use these items as you can see from the images below.

The images below show the children using the mini-whiteboards to practice for their weekly spelling tests.

The children of EP1 Red are progressing through the Varee Chiangmai School Reading Programme well.

The images below show the children reading  inside and outside of the classroom.

In science the children have already learnt about the various parts of a plant.

The images below show the children completing a mini-book which allows them to learn and focus on specific parts of a plant.

Mini books not only allow children to write and colour but also allow them to read in groups or individually from what they have created.

The images below show the children of EP1 Red taking part in a writing, sticking and pasting activity in order to remember the days of the week.

This was a task carried out during their English lesson.

In CAT the children have learnt about table manners and how to set a table properly.

This learning culminated in the children producing a placemat which they were then able to take home and use (if they so wished).

Recently in art the children produced a multi-textured piece which contrasted the difference between good teeth and bad teeth.

In this specific lesson, art was integrated with what the children have been learning in health.

The children of EP1 Red produced some really impressive pieces of art.

See below.

Last Friday on the 6th of July the children took part in another example of integrated learning here on the Varee Chiangmai School EP1 Programme.

In science the children of EP1 Red are learning about different types of habitats.

They have just finished learning about the arctic and the types of animals which live there and how they are specially adapted to live in such cold extremes.

I (teacher Chaz) just happen to be a very proud owner of a 1 year old Siberian Husky called Lucky, so I thought it would be a good idea to show the children first hand an animal which is well suited to live in such arctic conditions.

After explaining and discussing my dog’s special adaptations for example very thick double coat of fur, large furry ears, large padded paws and a very furry tail the children went on to draw him and then finally label his body parts.

As you can see from the images below this was an extremely popular activity and Lucky really loved (as all Siberian Huskies do) the attention from the kids.

I hope you enjoyed this EP1 Red blog!

Dear EP1 parents please keep in mind that these images only show a fraction of what the children have been learning inside and outside the EP1 Red classroom.

I look forward to your visit on-line very soon.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
