Learning EAL in the Early Years Foundation Stage

11/05/2022 13:00 - 16:00

Level: All

An increasing number of children are entering UK nurseries and YR classes with little or no English; many of these children have a good level of development in their first languages whilst others have limited first-language development.

This course will provide a chance to explore specific issues relating to the acquisition of EAL in the Foundation Stage including the importance of developing children’s first languages. There will be opportunities to consider strategies for facilitating language development and how to build positive partnerships with parents and carers. There will also be opportunities to discuss issues relating to the assessment of EAL learners.

We will consider:

  • how children learn first and additional languages;
  • strategies for facilitating language acquisition; and
  • partnerships with parents and carers.
