The Primary School Curriculum

We understand that students have different needs and learn in different ways which is why primary years at BVIS are considered a formative time, where children sharpen their personalities, learn life skills and develop their creativity and intellect.

The Primary School Curriculum 

We understand that students have different needs and learn in different ways which is why primary years at BVIS are considered a formative time, where children sharpen their personalities, learn life skills and develop their creativity and intellect.

The structure of the Primary years combines the National Curriculum of the UK and The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) in accordance with the context in Vietnam.

Bilingualism in the Primary School Curriculum 

Our combined curriculum ensures core skills in Maths and Literacy are developed alongside subject specific knowledge that is exciting, active and meaningful to your child and inspires a lifelong love of learning.

Our school curriculum aims to secure true bilingual proficiency upon graduation, as well as preparation for entrance to the world’s leading universities. English teachers teach subjects in English such as Literature, Science, ICT, Music and PE and Vietnamese teachers teach Vietnamese Mathematics and Literature for true language immersion.

Primary School students studying the BVIS Primary School Curriculum

The International Primary Curriculum or “Lien Ket” (Arts, History, Geography) are taught through lessons linked with the themes in both languages. The Lien Ket lessons combining English and Vietnamese in accordance with the same teaching method help the children become sensitive in the two languages. This method trains their brains to operate fully, actively and more sensitively. Additionally, in the same topic, the students are able to do research in English and Vietnamese to gain deeper knowledge.

The Bilingual Phonics is the most advanced and modern curriculum in Vietnam. It is developed on the modern English method but maintains the purity of Vietnamese language by BVIS HCMC experts and Ly Kha (PhD).

Throughout the Primary years, children will be equipped with firm English and Vietnamese language foundations, independent study skills and confidence.
