Inspiring a love of learning for Primary students (Years 1 – 6)

What you and your child can expect from our Virtual School Experience.

What is our Virtual School Experience?

Uniquely designed using the expertise of our best internationally trained teachers who are committed to nurturing and inspiring every child they care for, our impressive Virtual School Experience will ensure your child’s learning is continuous – from home, on campus and beyond the classroom.

Our Virtual School Experience (VSE) for Primary students brings to life every aspect of their curriculum. Each child is guided by their teachers through a blended learning approach, with innovative lessons and tasks tailored to their abilities and interests. There are also plenty of opportunities to enjoy lessons and complete tasks with their classmates, as well as other students from around the world via Global Campus, our exclusive online learning platform.  

What you can expect 

Our dedicated academic team has designed our VSE Primary timetable to reflect the same timetable that students follow during face-to-face learning. This ensures that students will transition seamlessly back to campus when school reopens. 

Our Primary (Years 1 – 6) timetable: 

  • Daily check-ins and registration with class teachers 
  • Daily reading, writing and Mathematics 
  • Weekly Science and IPC (International Primary Curriculum) 
  • Weekly specialist lessons (Vietnamese/Beginner Vietnamese, PE, Music, Computing, Modern Foreign Language and English Additional Language) 
  • Access to a broad range of e-books, resources, audio books and videos through our Primary e-Library 
  • Leadership activities 
  • Regular wellbeing sessions 
  • Assemblies led by the School Leadership Team 
  • Individual learning support where needed 
  • Extra Curriculum Activities programme  

Our VSE is delivered through a safe and secure platform, Microsoft Teams. We use ClassDojo - a communications platform that enables our teachers to celebrate students’ achievements and positive behaviour in addition to keeping parents up to date on their child’s learning and progress. 

Parent parentships 

At BIS Hanoi, our academic teams work in partnership with our parent community to provide them support, regular updates on their child’s development and achievements, and take on board their feedback to continually improve our virtual learning provision. We believe these parent partnerships are key to the success of our VSE programme: 

  • A simple and easy to follow timetable to allow families plan their daily schedules.
  • VSE Workshop Series to guide parents through the different aspect of the curriculum, systems, and communications channels. 
  • Regular teacher communication with parents  
  • Virtual Parents’ Evenings.
  • Ideas for off-screen activities for after school or during the weekend.

A sneak peek at our Virtual School Experience 

What do our parents say about VSE? 

While I prefer my children to learn face to face, I believe the Virtual School Experience has helped them to develop new computer skills which they otherwise may not have learned at this stage. They are now proficient at using their laptops, their typing skills have improved, and they know how to conduct themselves during a virtual meeting in a group. I feel all these skills will help them in the ever-increasing virtual world that we now live in. Mrs Jacinta Pearson
