Creative Curriculum Keeps BIS Hanoi on Target

Yesterday evening, was a wonderful celebration of Year 7 achievements and it was pleasing to see so many parents in attendance.  As Mrs Wild, the event organiser, explained, all of the children were excited to share their learning with friends, teachers and parents.

Drama, Art and Computer Science Flourish

There were notable examples of excellent surrealist artwork, some very cleverly designed apps and some exciting drama on display. This year, we have allocated more curriculum time in Year 7 to these subjects. We felt these subjects provided an opportunity for students from different language backgrounds to express their creativity. The Year 7 Work Share event provided satisfying evidence that the students have made the most of this extra time.

Grimm Tales Delight BIS Hanoi Audience 

We added more time to the creative curriculum in Year 8 and Year 9, too.  We also employed a full time Drama specialist, Ms Loveday, whose expert skills have added further depth to our Performing Arts team. 

On Wednesday evening, several stories were dramatically told by the Drama students in primary and secondary. Their production of Grimm Tales saw the children perform in the “round”. Performing in the round is a staging design that positions the audience in a circle round the stage.  It is challenging for young actors because it stretches them to use the entire theatre space in order to engage with the audience from every angle. Under Ms Loveday’s expert tuition, the children excelled.

BIS Hanoi Students Go Beyond End of Year Targets and Look Towards a Bright Future

When students enter BIS Hanoi, they present for a computer adaptive test that measures their potential cognitive abilities (CAT Target). The test generates ambitious target grades in academic subjects. The graph (below) shows the performance of the current Year 9 students measured against their end of Year 9 targets.  We can see that students are exceeding their targets in Mathematics and almost matching their targets in English. This is excellent news. The Year 9 children have formed a strong foundation for future success in their IGCSE studies.
