Our F3 EAL students had a busy first term developing their speaking and listening skills and learning vocabulary to talk about a range of topics including; colours, body parts and family. They also focused on Maths language, specifically numbers 0-10, 2D shapes, patterns and size. They loved the two Talk for Writing texts: ‘Each Peach Pear Plum’ and ‘The Enormous Turnip’. The children were introduced to characters and new vocabulary from the stories, and practised retelling the story with actions. Other activities included role play and sequencing the story with pictures. This week the EAL teachers have been supporting the children in-class during their International Week activities. For the rest of this term we will be learning lots more new vocabulary related to everyday topics such as, transport, jobs, clothing and food. Our Maths focus will be on numbers from 11-20 and telling the time. Phonics will continue as usual, with a new focus on reading and writing CVC words, e.g. dog, bed, and red words. It has been fantastic seeing the children grow in confidence in all four skills.

Don’t forget to look on Seesaw for regular updates showcasing what F3 EAL students have been learning each week and charting their progress in learning English. You will also find lots of ideas and resources to help support your child with their learning on the EAL blog: https://bishcmceal.blogspot.com
