Although we have been enjoying the Christmas concerts and activities, it has been super to see all the learning that has been taking place this week. In Year 2 on Thursday, all the children and teaching staff looked incredible dressed up as Ancient Egyptians for Egyptian Day. There were various activities taking place in the classrooms during the morning, followed by a rotation in the afternoon. To end the day, we welcomed parents in to see what the children had been learning.

F2 Spy Day
Learning in F2 takes many forms. On Wednesday, the children went on an adventure as spies, to BVIS. They had great fun while they were there, but the learning began before they even left; talking about the day, getting on to a bus, seeing and talking about the journey, having lunch in a different place. All these are opportunities for learning and will have been observed and recorded by the teachers and teaching assistants.

Cricket with Mike Gatting
Last Friday, we had a very exciting visitor come to BIS. Mike Gatting is a former captain of the England cricket team and was in Ho Chi Minh City to promote participation in sport, particularly cricket, with young people. I joined the members of our cricket club, as we took part in a training session with the cricketing legend. It was inspirational!

The Lunar New Year celebrations are early next year; we are off school from Thursday 31st January. This time will come round quickly, so we have already started our Tet Collection. We are going to be collecting items as usual, although there are some differences as to how we will be doing this, this year.
Year 2 Modern Foreign Language (MFL) Choices
Last week, all Year 2 parents should have received a letter with information about choosing a modern foreign language (either French, Spanish or Mandarin) that will be studied in Year 3. If you have not received this letter please contact Ms Van (firstname.lastname@example.org) who can provide you with one.
