Britist International School Hanoi - Upcoming events

Over the last two weeks in Primary assemblies, 4B and 5S have reinforced the importance of perseverance, not only in school but in life too. Ms Ower’s class told us the story of ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’ and cleverly adapted it to show how we can persevere even when storytelling. Today, 4B gave us some fantastic phrases to help keep us on track: keep going, don’t give up, step forwards, push yourself, everything is possible. In addition to these important messages, assemblies are a wonderful for opportunity for children to practise their speaking and presentation skills and it is wonderful to see our students doing so with such confidence and clarity.

Last week I had the pleasure to talk to a group of Middle Leaders from South East Asia about how our Superhero characteristics live and breathe in our school. From dropping into lessons, talking to and observing the children engrossed in their learning I thought I would share a few examples that I’ve seen this week.
Year 2 children were in a dance lesson with Mr. Langford creating 16 beat dance combinations and piecing it together with moves already learned. The children were discussing, sharing ideas and problem solving as they created moves and actions for their piece. It was also a lot of fun.
In Year 1 children were demonstrating perseverance in Guided Reading as they decoded words using their phonic knowledge to sound out then blend them. Learning to read is tricky, even more so in a second language, but they didn’t give up.
Our Year 5 and 6 BIS swim team will be persevering as they take part in a swimming competition in Ho Chi Minh City this weekend. They will be competing, along with some Secondary students against 8 other schools; we wish them all the best!

Incas Workshop for Parents

Children from Year 2 to Year 6 have been completing their Incas online assessments this week and this afternoon Ms. Fitzpatrick led a workshop for parents outlining the process that the children go through and what information you will receive from this. Don’t worry if you couldn’t make today’s session, we will have Pupil Progress meetings the week beginning March 12th where teachers will share the Incas data with you and update you on your child’s progress. Appointments and more information will be sent after the Tet Holiday.

We wish our Year 6 students all the best for Monday as they set off for Hoi An on their residential. This is a fantastic opportunity and something that the students will remember for years to come; I will join them on Tuesday evening and spend the day with them on Wednesday – I can’t wait!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Ms Rebecca Carroll, Head of Primary
