In KS1, we’ve begun doing topics such as Daily Routines with Year 2 putting on small plays in class about their four Superfriends and their daily routines. Year 1 have been powering on and expanding their vocabulary learning about toys and objects in our classroom.
At the higher end of the school, students have been diving in to the sci-fi world of time travelling, while the younger ones have been delving into the mysterious medieval world of Ben and Lucy.
Year 5 and 6 have been following their new characters through space and time as they recently travelled back to Pompeii and revisited the disaster that took Pompeii away from us.
Year 3 and 4 continued to follow Ben and Lucy as they continued their hunt for the ancient treasure that can be found only when we’ve finished all our topics. Year 3 have been looking for clues in school whereas Year 4 have just gone through a castle and fairgrounds searching for the next clue.
All the EAL students have shown such resilience in learning the new language and being brave in class by speaking out regardless of how long they’ve been learning the language. It has been really encouraging to see how their classmates help each other with little prompts to ensure everyone always has a turn to use the new vocabulary we’re learning.
Well done to all the EAL children for the fantastic beginning to the year!
