What is Lien Ket at BVIS and What are it’s benefits to your child?

13 April 2015

What is Lien Ket?

At BVIS, like our BIS sister schools, we deliver the National Curriculum for England plus the International Primary Curriculum or IPC. Both curricula are taught in British schools all over the world.


As BVIS is a dual  language school, we link learning in English and Vietnamese as much as possible with obvious benefits for the children as young language learners. Therefore the IPC is known here at BVIS as “Lien Ket” or “Link It” because the children learn every topic in both languages.

One of the main strengths of the IPC, or Lien Ket, is that the topics are relevant to children living in any country across the world. The topics are adjusted by teachers to include areas of study that are appropriate to the country where the children are living.

This term’s Lien Ket topics at BVIS:

Year 1 – Buildings and Structures

Year 2 – Communications

Year 3 – Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life

Year 4 – Food and Farming

Year 5 – Rivers

Year 6 – Location

Last week, Y2 children visited a printing factory and the post office for the “exit point” (or ending) of their “Communications” topic. Visits outside of school and visitors in school provide our children with the first hand experiences that are so important for effective learning.

The aim of this visit was for the children to see for themselves how a magazine is printed. Next they visited the office where the magazine is created. Finally the children travelled on to the main post office in HCMC to post a card to their parents with their very own poem written for their family.

Parents in Y3 and Y6 will be in school this week to attend their children’s “exit points” for this term’s Lien Ket topics. I hope they enjoy finding out what their children have been learning about this term – I know the children are looking forward to the events very much!
