Year 6 students had a busy time last term taking part in their Community project, this is a little of what they got up to...
Their project involved a lesson exchange with our local Vietnamese Primary School, Huynh Van Ngoi School. Each BIS class visited the school and learnt about Vietnamese culture, war & peace. They worked in groups to discuss different topics and took part in a quiz at the end of the lesson to see how much they learnt!
Each Year 6 class also welcomed the Huynh Van Ngoi students that they had met during their first visit. Students worked in groups to make a stop motion video with a Science theme – something new for Hunyh Van Ngoi students!
Learning Objectives of the project:
To allow students and teachers to broaden their understanding of how schools operate in another culture; either within Vietnamese system or equally the British system
Inspiring and developing English language levels in HVN students
Developing positive characteristics for BIS students through Vietnamese culture lessons
To connect students within the locality
To develop communication and confidence in both students
Reflection of the project
Well done Year 6!
