Modern Foreign Languages
At Winsor Primary children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity to learn French.
The children learn French through a variety of activities including, singing, games and joining in and responding to the teacher. The activities enable them to improve their oral and literacy skills.
They engage in conversations and learn to ask and answer questions.
They are also made aware of differences in culture. Each year group has the opportunity to take part in a different cultural experience.
EAL - English as an Additional Language
Children who have a first language other than English may need further intervention with their English language and understanding in order to support their academic and social development.
All new to Winsor children with EAL are assessed. This assessment provides us with an indication of their level of need.
EAL learners need lots of opportunities for speaking and listening. We also encourage the use of their first language. Key strategies we use for teaching include peer support and collaborative learning activities.
We provide opportunities for children to rehearse language orally before starting written work.
