This week in the Primary School – Ms Rosy Clark – 06/11/2015 06 November 2015 As parents and staff, we can all feel especially proud of the Primary children in the British Vietnamese International School this week. I explained in last week’s assembly that we would have a large group of visitors in school for a week and I asked the children to reflect upon how they could use all the special words in our aide memoire to welcome them to BVIS. I am delighted to report that I received many, many comments from the CIS team made up of Principals, Headteachers and other senior school leaders throughout the week. They told me how friendly and enthusiastic they found our Early Years and Primary children to be, how they asked their own questions of the visitors and tried their very best to answer questions about the school and their learning. I know the children were particularly excited that our CIS visitors had travelled from international schools in several different countries in Asia to spend the week with us here at BVIS. (slide taken from the children’s assembly on Friday 30th November). Also this week: 1. Thank you to all the parents who joined in the excitement of our theme day in the Early Years department on Wednesday. “Mad Scientist Day” was a big hit with the children – they looked the part and loved exploring and finding out about the world around them through the exciting activities specially prepared by the teachers. 2. There was a large audience in the Main Hall on Thursday for our Primary ICT coffee morning. Congratulations to the Year 4 and Year 6 children who helped to teach the parents how to use some of the technology we have in school to teach “coding”. Thank you to Mr Gavin, Ms Mai, Mr Oliver and all the Early Years staff led by Ms Catherine for organising and delivering these events. We hope the parents who participated feel that they have learned more about the BVIS curriculum and our strategies for teaching and learning through their attendance at these events.
