Lower Phase | Reception to Year 2
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 Primary Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) helps provide those parents with children in the Primary Phase of the School with suitable tools and resources to support their children at home.
The VLE enables us to share information with parents about school events, to outline the learning taking place each week, to provide parental 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.
Each week a range of specific/relevant activities will be released 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.
