Here at St-Agnes we have children from many different countries, speaking varied languages. These children are supported in EAL (English as an Additional Language) groups. The children receive different levels of language development support depending on their individual needs.
Early Language Development
In small, time- focused groups, the children develop their speaking and listening skills whilst acquiring key vocabulary about a number of topics including:
Meeting and greeting, family and the community, routines, days of the week and months of the year, weather and the seasons and food and healthy living.
Here are some useful links you may wish to use at home :
English for kids is a site for kids learning English as a foreign or second language
LearnEnglish Kids is brought to you by the British Council, the world’s English teaching experts. We have lots of free online games, songs, stories and activities for children. For parents, we have articles on supporting children in learning English, videos on using English at home and information about face-to-face courses around the world.
If you have any questions or require any extra help please don’t hesitate to contact me in school.
Look out for upcoming posts with supporting activities for you to share with your children.
