Reviewing Emily Simpson's EAL Task

It was nice to see that Emily used the same book as me for this task. It was very interesting to see her take on how she'd use it with a different age group and what focus she'd have for her teaching sequence. I loved her idea for starting with a drama-based activity as it takes the pressure to use language away for EAL pupils and allows them to engage with the task and the story. The second activity shows a nice progression onto connecting the words with the images and the final activity shows good links with science.

Overall I think this was an excellent teaching sequence and it really shows that Emily has given a lot of thought to issues surrounding EAL pupils and literacy.
