Contribution by Ms Irene Alkemade- EAL Coordinator Primary school
EAL stands for English as Additional Language. From the start of this academic year, Ms Ingrid and Ms Irene have been working with a lot of children who are new to English to support them. In different levels and age groups, we have been focusing on basic vocabularies, such as; colours, days, months, numbers, opposites, emotions, school vocabulary, their personal identity and survival sentences.
We do this in creative, auditive or visual ways making the students feel comfortable and confident. At times we also focus on words that are important for the curriculum. In our pictures, you can see some actions and results from the children in our group.
We want to compliment our students on how hard they are working. We are very proud of their progress. Well done!
