Weeks 5 to 7 in EP1 Red (June 2013)


Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

The images below show a small fraction of what the children have been learning in EP1 Red.

I hope you enjoy the images!

In Health the children have just started learning about what foods are good and bad for their teeth.

The children in groups created basic lists with the help of the teacher, then they shared the information with the whole class.

A conclusive list of good and bad foods was then created.

The children in two consecutive Health lessons stuck into their Health notebooks a ‘happy tooth’ and a ‘sad tooth’.

Finally they wrote down the foods which they had decided upon in their tooth then drew and coloured an appropriate image.

The children of EP1 Red are well aware that there may be times when other children will need their help.

Helping one another and sharing is encouraged in a positive way in EP1 Red. Altruistic behaviour creates camaraderie and also helps to create long-lasting bonds between everyone in a class.

Reading is a vital component to the English Programme here at Varee Chiangmai School and it is taught using a variety of  different learning strategies. Independent and group reading is a daily activity and as you can see from the images below the children are extremely proud when they are able to read a book without assistance.

The ultimate goal for any teacher is to eventually be able to step back, so to speak and let the children carry out an educational activity without assistance.

By removing this ‘scaffolding’ the children then move their developmental levels further.

Art is defined as an integrated subject. By this it is meant that this subject is connected to a theme that the children may be learning in one of their other English language subjects. In this case the art lesson was integrated with what the children have just finished learning in science i.e. body parts/parts of the face. The emphasis here is to create something that looks realistic and to move the children away from creating pieces which may seem overly exaggerated .

Clay is an extremely versatile and therapeutic medium with which to work and the children really loved this activity.

All the children created unique and beautiful pieces of art which they and their English teacher were extremely proud of.

Well done EP1 Red!!!!!!!!

Hygeine and cleanliness is extremely important in a child’s daily routine and even more so when the children have been working with clay.

Each and every subject that is taught to the children in the English Programme (except for Thai subjects) uses English language to further a child’s understanding in that specific subject.

This means that a Varee Chiangmai School English Programme pupil is continually learning and (eventually) thinking in English to complete set activities and solve problems. This together with the fact that the children are encouraged to speak in English all the time they are in their EP classroom (except for when in a Thai lesson) enhances their English language development considerably.

By the end of the academic year I am certain that you will see a difference in your child not only in terms of their English language development but also in terms of the various new skills, concepts and learning strategies they will have developed.

Kind regards…………Teacher Chaz.
