This week in the Primary School

Keeping going right to the end of term!

Even though it is just a matter of days before the end of the academic year, we are learning and celebrating achievement at full speed here in the Primary School!

This week Year 4 and Year 5 children participated in ‘mini-enterprise’ mornings. As you are no doubt aware, Nord Anglia Education schools collaborate with MIT in America and ‘mini-enterprise’ is a learning approach which incorporates many skills involved in STEAM learning.

What is mini-enterprise? Students work in groups to design, produce and ‘sell’ items. It is a learning activity that helps children to gain an understanding of the roles of different people working in business, to think about the challenges, demands and constraints involved and to work effectively in a team to product a quality end product.

In our mini-enterprise mornings at the British Vietnamese International School, the children were required to use their Maths, Science, planning and design, construction, problem solving, testing, presenting, leadership and team work skills. They were given a budget, had to ‘purchase’ their materials from the shop and convince one of the teachers to ‘buy’ their final product. Year 4 children created a “Liter of Light” and Year 5 children were challenged to make a “No More Noise Device”. Both challenges were linked to units of Science the children have studied this year.

This is learning at its best where practical and challenging application of knowledge, skills and understanding takes place… and it’s great fun too!

Other events this week have been:

  • The Year 1 exit point on Tuesday when many parents came along to the Main Hall to enjoy this celebration of the children’s learning in this term’s Lien Ket topic about food.

  • The end of year music concert on Thursday evening in the Main Hall which was a wonderful celebration of music at the school. Primary students involved in various extra-curricular music activities were given the opportunity to perform in front of friends, family, staff members and Secondary musicians.
