Hsis NQT - KS1 Meeting the needs of pupils with EAL

11/05/2021 13.30 - 15.30

Level: New

EAL learners learn best when they spend most of their time in class accessing the curriculum alongside their English-speaking peers.

This course will help you consider how children learn English as an additional language and to therefore reflect on how best to support their language-learning needs within the classroom. We will also consider how best to assess children in order to show progress.

There will be opportunities to:

  • consider some of the main factors affecting second language acquisition;
  • develop awareness of systems for assessing pupils’ language development; and
  • consider some practical strategies for supporting pupils.
