Year 2’s Vehicle Day

25 November 2016

This week we introduced Year 2 to their new International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic ‘Transportation’, by filling the playground with different vehicles for the children to explore.

  • BIS Ho Chi Minh Year 2’s Vehicle Day-1
  • BIS Ho Chi Minh Year 2’s Vehicle Day-6
  • BIS Ho Chi Minh Year 2’s Vehicle Day-5
  • BIS Ho Chi Minh Year 2’s Vehicle Day-4
  • BIS Ho Chi Minh Year 2’s Vehicle Day-3
  • BIS Ho Chi Minh Year 2’s Vehicle Day-2

Last Tuesday morning the APP playground was turned into a makeshift ‘Vehicle Park’ for Year 2’s new topic ‘Transport’ in IPC. There was a bicycle, car, coach and even a couple of Xich Lo’s for the children to ride on! “I loved riding on the Xich Lo with all my friends!” shouted Jesper. Navita said, “The Xich Lo was a bit scary and bumpy and I kept on falling off the baby tricycle!”

Allowing the children the opportunity to experience and explore vehicles will give them something to relate back to when they are in the classroom. For example, later on when we learn about how a Xich Lo works, the children will think, “Hey, I remember riding on a Xich Lo at school.” The pupils will also be able to relate their learning to fun, and we all know that when we have fun doing something then we are much more interested in it and so we learn even more!

You can see from the pictures that the children loved the morning with the vehicles. It is so important to engage the children in creative and fun ways like this. The children would like to say a huge thanks to Miss. Gemma Hobbs for organising this brilliant morning.
