Dear ep1 red VCIS Parents and Guardians,
The Summer holiday is a really long time for children to forget a lot of their English language knowledge and fluency.
I would sincerely advise all parents and guardians to regularly encourage, oversee and indeed join their child in reading.
- Two months without reading in English will make it more challenging for your child to begin their English language learning in EP2.
As little as twenty minutes of English reading everyday will be of huge benefit to them when they resume their schooling in May 2017.
If parents and guardians have more time to spare after the 20 minutes of reading than I would humbly advise you to encourage your child to write freely on A4 (AC) paper about whatever he or she wants. A short story would be ideal, maybe beginning with ‘once upon a time…’.
Parents and guardians could also, maybe even ask their child questions relating to the written text which, he or she must answer in English or your child could even translate what they have written into Thai, Korean, Dutch German or Chinese.
Unfortunately if skills and knowledge are not used frequently, they will inevitably decline.
Thank you all very much and I look forward to seeing you all once again very soon.
Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.
