Coffee Mornings

In the past two weeks in school, we have held three coffee mornings for parents and carers to attend. Last week, there was a session provided by ‘Family Medical Practice’ on CPR. This was the first in a new series of coffee mornings for BVIS providing information about different issues relating to the health and safety of children. Look out for more workshops like this through our collaboration with health experts in Ho Chi Minh City.

Always popular with parents at BVIS are our Phonics Coffee Mornings. As in previous years, we are offering you a programme of three practical sessions this term to find out about our unique bilingual phonics programme. By coming along to these coffee mornings, you will also get the chance to learn and practise phonics in both English and Vietnamese in order to support your child as s/he learns to read. Mr Ben Brown (Lower Primary Coordinator) and Ms Ha Nguyen (Vietnamese Literacy Coordinator) will teach you the strategies used at school so you can help your child with their phonics learning at home.

  • BVIS HCMC Phonics Parents Workshop Hội thảo âm vần (13)
  • BVIS HCMC Phonics Parents Workshop Hội thảo âm vần (10)
  • BVIS HCMC Phonics Parents Workshop Hội thảo âm vần (4)
  • BVIS HCMC Phonics Parents Workshop Hội thảo âm vần (18)
  • BVIS HCMC Phonics Parents Workshop Hội thảo âm vần (1)

Finally, another extremely well-attended coffee morning took place on Friday of this week targeted at parents of Early Years children on the topic of Class Dojo. Class Dojo has been the main form of communication in the Primary school for several years now. So, listening to the feedback from our parents, this year we have extended its use to Early Years. We hope that all our parents right across the Primary school enjoy using it and find it helpful for keeping in touch with what their child is learning and experiencing at school. Thanks to Ms Rebecca Robinson (EYFS Coordinator) and Ms Linh Nguyen (F2 teacher) for leading this session.
