English Workshop 1st September, 2012

Our 3rd English Workshop of the year was a success and was attended by 32 children over 3 sessions. Vistana Hotel provided the setting for us, with a nice Function Room and some good refreshments.

The agenda for the Workshop included:

  • Ice-breaking
  • Pictionary
  • Boggle
  • Speech
  • Listening Test
  • Treasure Hunt

The children really enjoyed themselves. This time we gave everyone individual points for how well they performed on each task. 

At the end of each Workshop the points were totalled and a winner declared. So here are the three winners:

9am session winner: Karthik

1pm session winner: Jia Qi

4.30pm session winner: Ken Foong

Congratulations to our three winners who scored the most points in word games, writing, listening and speaking exercises!

Here are some photo highlights of each session of the English Workshop:

There's a really cute little boy in the first session, the one with a blue T shirt. When I enlarged the picture I could see he had GIRAFFES on his T shirt.

His name is Lucas. He was the youngest participant. Only 3 years old.

Thanks Jennifer, mixing fun with education is the key isn't it?!

Mum, I never noticed that until you pointed it out!

Fie, thanks for the update!

I like style of teaching with fun! My classes are technical stuff, i may not be able to have too much fun teaching it but I sure sometimes try !

Hi Wong, thanks for popping over. Yes, the fun does seem to get smaller when the students are older!
