Lower Phase (Reception to Year 2)
We know parents of our Lower Phase students are very willing to help with their children’s education and only require the tools to do so. This is why we have created the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
What is the VLE?
BSK uses a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) which gives students and parents access online to educational materials and interactive activities.
The VLE enables us to share information with parents about school events, to outline the learning taking place each week and to provide supportive resources and materials that students can use at home to consolidate and extend their learning independently.
Why should we use the VLE?
During a week in school many areas of the curriculum are covered. The VLE gives children the opportunity to follow up their learning by identifying areas that they would like to work on for self-improvement or out of curiosity and interest.
A range of specific/relevant activities will be provided that will enable children to continue their learning at home, consolidating and reinforcing new skills and concepts or challenging themselves to build on developing skills and extend themselves further.
How should the VLE be used?
Every Sunday the learning objectives will be updated and relevant activities displayed.
Talk with your child about what they have enjoyed learning in the week and where they need further practice and then together select one or two activities to do.
We do not expect all of the suggested activities on the VLE to be completed.
