Primary School Updates (01 October 2021)

Weekly update from Head of Primary

Dear Parents,

It has been another week of exciting learning in the Primary School; students have been working hard and this week it is the turn of our Year 6 students who have the spotlight on their learning. In addition to the full curriculum, Year 6 students have been crafting letters to Mr. Vaughan and myself to apply for the role of House and Vice-Captain of our school House Teams Hanoi, Dalat, Hue and Saigon. It is an exciting leadership position, and we look forward to welcoming them to their interviews which begin at the end of next week. I look forward to sharing more about this with you in the coming weeks.

It was great to see so many parents attend our most recent Virtual School Experience (VSE) Parent Workshop today for phonics. Ms. Jasmine explained how and why we teach phonics at BIS, both in the context of VSE and in school. Parents found it useful as they gained an understanding into the different phases of phonics their children study and how they can help and support at home. Ms. Jasmine shared many practical and fun games and ideas that parents can do with their children to help deepen their children’s knowledge of phonics to help them read and spell.

The slides (in English and Vietnamese) and recording of this VSE workshop are available in the parent folder in every child’s Teams files. Please check this folder regularly to see all of our previous VSE workshop slides and recordings.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Rebecca Carroll
