Modern Foreign Languages
At Winsor Primary children in Years 3, 4 and 5 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.
When children with EAL are new to Winsor we assess their level of need. This assessment provides opportunities so the teacher can see what aspects of language to target next.
EAL learners need lots of opportunities for speaking and listening, and to be encouraged to use their first language. Key strategies we use include peer support and collaborative learning activities.
Work is also produced through the use of writing frames and opportunities to rehearse language orally before writing are also used.
