Our younger children have been learning about ‘Animals’ and ‘Places around town’ through activities and songs. They have been working towards well-constructed sentence patterns: this week the Year 1 children loved discussing and then writing about unusual animals; imagine a creature - half crocodile and half lion!
The KS2 children have continued to follow the adventures of the characters - Alex, Phoebe and Patrick, as they travel through time and space. Recently the characters visited a Space restaurant and The Wild West and the EAL children enjoyed talking about food and travel to different countries - always a great topic in an International school!
Alongside the EAL topics we have been teaching the language to support this term’s STEAM topic - Biofuels. We had some great activities to help the children identify renewable and non-renewable fuels and this has allowed the children to be fully involved in the mainstream learning time.
