Year 1 EAL

The EAL students in Year 1 have had a great start to the year! They have been having fun while learning new vocabulary and language.

In some lessons, the students raced the clock to sequence the letters of the alphabet and match lower case and capital letters. This skill will help to improve their writing by increasing their awareness of the difference between capital and lower case letters, as well as help them during English lessons involving putting words in alphabetical order.

In other lessons, the students had a great time practising speaking and listening skills using our new Talking Tubes. They used complete sentences to express their likes and dislikes, and they recorded what they learned about the other students in class. We are looking forward to more fun and learning in Year 1 EAL!

Year 2 EAL

What an exciting first term we have had so far! It’s been great to see our students get so involved with the Talk for Writing programme. We have loved watching everyone invent their own characters and settings; bring them to life by using a variety of adjectives to describe them; and then animatedly tell their stories to their class.

As well as this, the students have done a terrific job of both following and writing instructions. They included time connectives to sequence their own instructions, and in some groups we’ve been including adverbs too. From these, we made some beautiful poppies for a commemorative installation for the Battle of the Somme.
