In EAL, Year 5 and 6 are learning about classic literature (Shakespeare and Icarus, respectively) while Year 4 are learning about the solar system.
Year 3 students have been practising past tense verbs and creating doctor’s office dialogues. Year 2 practised vocabulary for measurement and transport. They even designed their own amazing cars! Year 1 have just started a new unit on animals and prepositions and are getting much better at saying and reading full sentences, such as “The cats are under the desk.”
As you can see, we practise English in lots of different ways. Additionally, we’ve had a recent emphasis on learning through technology, so students have been using iPads to do research, play grammar games, do quizzes, take and talk about photos, and record themselves doing role-plays.
