Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

teacher Chaz

Can your child please bring a toy to school for Friday the 26th of August?


The children of ep1 are currently learning about measuring  weight in maths.


The purpose of bringing their toys to school this Friday is to estimate then to actually weigh them. Then to further find out which toy is the heaviest and lightest in the class and to also write sentences about whose toys are lighter, heavier and as heavy as their own toys.

I hope you can help with this request.

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red ‘What Do The Letters Say?’ Song (2016)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red parents and guardians,

Below is a YouTube video of ep1 red singing their favourite phonics song.

15 weeks ago many of the children in ep1 red were unfamiliar with phonics however, now everyone is able to read to a basic but competent level.

It is absolutely amazing to see how far the children have come in such a short space of time, considering the children are not even half way through the school year!

I am extremely proud!!!

I hope you enjoy the video.

Kind regards…Teacher Chaz.

In science the ep1 children are learning about birds and their unique characteristics.

The images below show the children composing simple sentences.

* Initially the children completed a birds worksheet where they used a word box to write the correct bird name under the corresponding bird image.

** Next the children cut the bird images from their worksheets and stuck them into their notebooks.

*** Finally the children referred to the bird names they had already written on thier worksheets to compose correct sentences in their notebook.

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.

EP1 Red Practical Maths Measuring Activities


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 Red parents and guardians,

This was the final week learning about measuring length and width in mathematics.

(DURING THESE NEXT FEW WEEKS THE CHILDREN WILL BE LEARNING ABOUT MEASURING WEIGHT.)

Below you can see images of the children measuring and recording the length and height of various items in the classroom.

* There were 4 stations each with 2 different items to measure.

** Once the children had all measured their items and read and answered the questions on their worksheets, they then all moved on to the next station.

This was a great lesson, not only to consolidate the children’s learning over these past few weeks, but to also put measuring into practical use for them.

As you can see all of the EP1 Red pupils were really engrossed in this activity!

I hope you enjoy the images!

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.
