varee chiangmai school

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Below are a couple of images of the ep1 red pupils before their swimming class a few weeks ago.

I forgot to post the images on the last ‘swimming class reminder’ post.

As I am sure you already know, swimming is ep1 red’s favourite lesson.

Kind regards…teacher Chaz.

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


varee chiangmai school

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Below are 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.



ESTIMATING


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

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.

Dear EP1 Red parents and guardians,

Today the children of ep1 red have been asked to bring in their favourite toy for this Friday’s Mathematics lesson.

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.
