Tales of Fear - Year 6 EAL

This term Year 6 EAL Students have been giving each other (and their teachers) nightmares, as they write their ‘Tales of Fear.’ Goosepimpling good!

  • EAL 2606 1
  • EAL 2606 2
  • EAL 2606 3

Earlier in the term, the students learned a variety of techniques to create suspense within a story, such as show not tell; onomatopoeias; using a variety of different sentence structures to add impact; and using cliff hangers. We also looked at carefully selecting powerful vocabulary to add a sense of fear. This resulted in some truly scary and nail biting stories!

We are now writing factual reports on ‘strange fears’. For this we have reviewed the passive voice, and have looked at the difference between concrete and abstract nouns. We’ve also learned lots of weird and wonderful facts.

Well done on all your hard work Year 6!

Ms Erica Barthorpe, Year 6 EAL Teacher

At the British International School we offer some support to those children for whom English is not their first language.
