Year 3 Progress Report 2018 from British International School HCMC.

Year 3 Update

Every year at BIS HCMC is busy and this year is no exception. In just 3 weeks children in Year 3 have excavated fossils from rocks (chocolate chips from cookies), tested rocks to identify the rock best suited for Ms Dee to make a new kitchen work surface, and learned a complete warning story too! I have been very impressed with how much the children have grown up since leaving Year 2 and how independent they are becoming.

As I’m sure you are now aware, two new initiatives this year are the use of Seesaw and Reading Eggs. These tools will be used to support learning in class and, importantly, at home. If there was one question that was asked during this week’s parent student consultation evening it was:

"What can I do at home to support my child’s learning?"

Both Reading Eggs and Seesaw are tools that should be used at home to help. Nurturing a lifelong love of reading at home not only helps children to enjoy texts and books but also helps in every aspect of learning in school. Reading Eggs is a fun app that provides clear and step by step reading instruction for beginner to advanced junior school children. It cannot ever, however, replace the interaction of loved one sharing and enjoying a story. This is one of the biggest ways parents can help at home.


Seesaw is the platform through which parents and children can access and ‘see’ into the classroom. When a new post comes through it is important to talk with your child about their learning and what was happening. I cannot stress enough how important it is to do this in your home language. Year 3 children work so very hard to use and learn English during the day in school. At home all Year 3 children should be developing and strengthening their home language. As parents, this means simply discussing the learning you see on Seesaw, reading books and telling stories in your home language and, most importantly, playing with your child. Play is very important and it can be any activity you love to do together. Baking, cooking, crafting or board games etc., all can be used to support and nurture home languages. So every week the homework is have fun!


If you have not yet downloaded the Seesaw and Reading eggs apps, please use the links on the learning letters and Seesaw letters that were handed out this week.
