vcis-english-logo

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Today the children in ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, completed Unit 15 in their English language subject, based around the theme of The Beach.

Each piece of theme based writing has been produced independently of the teacher, as the children are more than capable of ‘going it alone’ now.

Very few spelling and grammatical errors were made.

I am extremely proud of the progress all of my pupils have made this academic year!!!!

All of the children in ep1 have now completed all of their learning in their various English language subjects, for the academic year.


Now the ep1 homeroom teachers are preparing the children for their end of year English and Thai subject assessments which, will take place next Monday the 27th of February through to Friday the 3rd of March.


This will be the very last ep1 red blog post showing your children’s work and activities.

Thank you very much…Teacher Chaz.

Completed STEM Project with EP1 Red at VCIS (2017)


vcis-english-logo

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Today the children in ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School completed their end of year STEM project.

The project was based around designing fabricating and testing a kite.

  1. Initially the children brainstormed with the teacher and with each other as to what qualities and types of materials would be needed in creating a kite, along with other factors such as the shape and the forces involved in flying it.

2. The children then went on to draw their own kite designs, listing the materials they would require and their quantities.

3. Finally the children created their kites. The problems one individual or group of children encountered during the creating process were shared with the class. This way the children were learning and amending their plans as they created their designs.

Being able to evaluate and modify concepts is a key skill employed in STEM and I was extremely proud of all of my class.

4. Today the children were able to test out and play with their kites.

After this the children went back to the classroom to discuss and brainstorm what they could have done to make their kites even better, what problems they encountered during the creating process and what they would like to do their next STEM project on.

An extremely successful ESL STEM project which really benefited the children’s learning in a multitude of ways.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
