EAL Update

In Year 3 EAL, we have been taking our writing skills to the next level!

At first, we focussed on fiction, planning and writing a ‘warning story’ based on ‘Kassim and the Greedy Dragon’. We had fun working out the structure of the story and adapting it with our own ideas. We also persevered with using the past tense and punctuating our sentences correctly with capital letters, commas and full stops. In the next unit, we turned our attention to non-fiction, learning how to research and write a report about a dinosaur. As well as learning lots of scientific language, we found out how to use titles, sub-headings and paragraphs to organise our writing. We also used adverbs (e.g. surprisingly and interestingly) to make our writing more imaginative.

We are currently learning how to write a ‘rags to riches’ fairy tale, using strong adjectives and speech marks. We have particularly enjoyed learning adjectives to describe villains, such as ‘despicable’ and ‘wicked’. We have also begun looking in depth at sentence structure and how to form simple and compound sentences using conjunctions. What a busy and productive term it has been!

You can find out more about EAL at BIS on our new EAL Blog where there are lots of activities to help with developing English language skills
