Our Group 1 children have been learning about ‘Parts of the body’ through activities and songs whilst the Group 2 children have learnt about different ‘Types of transport.’
The Group 3 lessons have continued to follow the adventures of the characters - Ben and Lucy, as they try to solve a mystery. This week the characters visited a World Model Village and the EAL children enjoyed talking about travel to different countries – always a great topic in an International school!
The Group 4 children started off the week by learning about space and astronauts, then discussed what they would like to be when they grow up.
Finally, the Group 5 children have continued their book; When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and used the text to inspire them to write, to review their knowledge about past tense and practise using reported speech.

We have just started an exciting EAL summer term. The language journey we are taking is more and more interacting and full of new linguistic surprises.
KS1 is implementing speaking and writing skills by describing places, clothes and emotions. Pair work activities, skits, dress-up and collaborative games are great tools to talk, make connections and write complete sentences about different topics in the term.
KS1 is flying high towards well-constructed sentence patterns: the children love to discuss about unusual animals, to describe their favorite gadgets, to create sentences with homophones or to be curious about adventurous texts.
