Global Lego Challenge

One of the many benefits of being part of the Nord Anglia group of schools are the collaboration opportunities. Next week Ms. Tong will launch the Lego Challenge to our students in Primary, which is an exciting project about creating a secret hideout for a superhero. This is an exciting challenge that will spark the interest of many of our young learners and is an opportunity for the children to get creative and start building. Lego translates from Danish as ‘play well’ and has featured in many of childhoods over the years and it is wonderful to see how engrossed children become in their own creations. As well as being fun it helps develop: children’s fine motor skills, perseverance, problem solving and there is a wonderful sense of accomplishment.  

Poppy Perseverance

Today in EYC we had a special visitor who came to give out the ‘Star of the Week’ certificates, it was Poppy Perseverance. She was delighted to see and share how the children had not given up  in the face of challenge and kept on trying. Ms. Isabelle also read a well-known story ‘We’re Going On a Bear Hunt’ and the children were able to make connections between their own experiences and the ones in the story and how they persevere.

Maths Mastery and Strategies

Maths is just one example of how children’s understanding deepens through making links in their learning; as a result children become more confident and able mathematicians. Mr. Callan, our Maths leader in Primary will be running a workshop next week for all Primary parents (Y1-6) to share strategies and calculations that are taught. The aim of this workshop is to give parents a better understanding of the progression of skills, see strategies that we teach and how you can help your children at home. Our curriculum statements, which include the key maths objectives for each year group for Term2 were sent home last week and are also available on our website.

Blue Dragon Tet Appeal

Blue Dragon is a children’s charity that operates in Hanoi and across Vietnam. Often the children they work with are homeless and sleeping rough on the streets. Blue Dragon works to support these children by giving them hot meals, offering them shelter, providing a learning centre and trying to reunite them with their families where possible. Chris, a volunteer, from Blue Dragon came to speak with Primary children in assembly today about the work they do and also to ask for our support. Their Tet Appeal is asking for donations to create food baskets to give to young children and their families who are not as fortunate as ourselves. Information will be going on class blogs but we are asking for donations of:

Fish sauce, candy, biscuits, Mut Tet (dried fruit), tea and Coffee to create Tet basket to donate. Our community partners are very important to us at BIS and it is also crucial that our students understand the reason behind our charity drives and have a connection with it. I hope you can help support our community with this worthwhile project.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

Mrs Rebecca Carroll, Head of Primary
