EP1 Red Independent Creative Writing Family Biographies (January 2017)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red VCIS parents and guardians,

Below are images of first drafts of independent creative writing centred upon the topic of family, produced by the pupils of ep1 red, here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

Image result for i love writing

Only major grammatical and major spelling errors have been highlighted and of course fed back to the children, whom then went on to create finalised versions.

Again I must mention that the children were not helped in anyway. Also they did not refer to any external sources for the spellings of the words written and what they have produced is from their hearts and own imaginations.

I am so incredibly proud of my pupils as the majority of them entered into ep1 red with no English, writing reading or indeed speaking abilities.



Over these years it has been an honour and privilege to have been the English, Science, Maths, Career and Technology, Information Technology, Social Sciences, Health and Art teacher to six consecutive classes of 5 to 6 year olds. This of course does not exclude how I feel about my 2 and a half years directly before this as a kindergarten and pre-kindergarten teacher.

I have undeniably the best job in the world and the ep1 red blog has been created to share these memories with you, my pupils and indeed myself!



There are only six weeks of learning left for the pupils of ep1 and I sincerely and humbly hope that you have seen the great advancements made by your children over this academic year.

I hope you enjoy the images!

The actual written pieces can be viewed outside of the ep1 red classroom.

I apologise for some of the images being misfocused.

My kindest regards…Teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Science Stained Glass Windows (December 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

Today the children of ep1 red, here at Varee Chiangmai International School, created beautiful representations of stained glass windows.

This activity was to complement the children’s learning in Science about different materials.

Image result for beautiful stained glass windows

In this case the children’s final Science topic was on glass.

The children first drew something which was important to them, in a very simple uncomplicated style.

They then created the stained glass ‘effect’ around their creations.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

Ep1 Red Semi Symmetrical Art Class (November 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

This year has been the first year out of my six years as an ep1 homeroom teacher, here at Varee Chiangmai International School, that I have not taught Art to my pupils.

This being the case, I thought it would be a great shame for my pupils to miss out this year, so the children of ep1 red have used a few moments daily, out of their homeroom periods, to produce absolutely splendid pieces of semi-symmetrical art.

This has been my only taught art lesson this year for my pupils, however I hope that next academic year I will be able to teach this subject all year round, as I enjoy it immensely!!!

My pupils are extremely talented and I am extremely proud of all of their successes in EP1 red.

I hope you enjoy the images.

These beautiful pieces of art can be seen and viewed outside of our classroom.

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.

Outside Our Classroom EP1 Red (November 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red parents and guardians,

The children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, have worked exceptionally hard all year learning new concepts, skills grammar and vocabulary.

Please feel free to see what the children have produced, by viewing their best works outside of our classroom.

The majority of children who entered English programme 1 red in May 2016, had no understanding of the English language however, by working hard with one another they have all now become very capable pupils.

I hope that you are seeing your child’s English language development, developing more and more, as each day passes, because I certainly am!!!

I am extremely proud of all of the pupils in my class.

This will be my 6th consecutive class of outstanding ep1 pupils!!

Thank you and kind regards…teacher Chaz.

Introductory Integrated Maths and Science Class on Shapes (October 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear VCIS ep1 Red parents and guardians,

Next week the ep1 children here at Varee Chiangmai International School will start to learn about shapes in Maths.

Today the children had an introductory lesson on shapes by using tangrams to create various animals.

A tangram is essentially a puzzle consisting of 7 shapes.

These shapes can then be used to create a multitude of animals and objects.

1. Firstly the children were given a tangram template to colour in.

2. They then cut out the 7 shapes a tangram consists of.

3. The children watched various mini videos on how to create different animals and composed them using the mini-whiteboards as a ‘canvas’.

4. The children then chose one animal they liked and stuck them onto their worksheets.

5. Finally the children wrote simple informative sentences about their animals relating to whether it was a mammal or a bird.

This is an example of integrated learning in the classroom.

The children are applying what they learned in Science (mammals and birds) and indeed Health (body parts) last term, to complement their learning in an entirely different subject this term. In this case Mathematics.

Thank you…teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Practical Maths Class on Volume and Capacity (September 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear EP1 Red VCIS parents and guardians,

Below are a few images of today’s final maths lesson this term about volume and capacity.

All of the children were asked to bring in a plastic or metal container and were put into small groups.

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

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

Image result for liquid volume clipart



ESTIMATING


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

metal-cup


ACTUAL MEASUREMENT

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 estimates were close to their actual measurements.

Final Maths Class on Capacity Tomorrow (2016)


 

varee chiangmai school

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Tomorrow the 15th of September the children of ep1 red here at Varee Chiangmai International School, will be involved in estimating and measuring amounts of water held in various containers.

They will then record the data and find out whose container held the most, the least and why.

Would it please be possible for your child to bring to school a plastic or metal container from home.

(NO PLASTIC BOTTLES PLEASE.)



All of the containers should be empty.

NO GLASS CONTAINERS PLEASE.

Thank you…teacher Chaz.



Here are a few ideas:

EP1 Red Independent Story Map Activity (August 2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear VCIS ep1 Red parents and guardians,

Today the children here at Varee Chiangmai International School, created a story map.

* The children were given 6 randomly ordered sentences from their current reading book.

** The children had to independently work out the order sequence of the sentences by referring to their reading books.

*** On the story map worksheet the children firstly wrote the page number and then the sentence.

**** Finally they then went on to draw the correct page illustration and then to go on to colour it.

This activity is one of many to create greater understanding of new texts.

I am extremely proud of all of my pupils especially, since it is has only been 13 weeks since they all started on the English programme, here at Varee Chiangmai School.

I hope you enjoy the images of this English lesson and the final pieces of work.
