Ellie's Blog Review
Eleanor Hobday's EAL task focused on the book 'Elmer', which I felt was an excellent choice. It is well knwon by most British children, and Ellie rightly said that the repetition within the book would aid children with EAL. One thing which I had not thought of before was the idea of the celebration of individuality being a key point in the book which would help those feeling isolated. This made the text selection an even better choice than I had first thought!
Another positive from her task is that the three task show a clear progression across the quadrants. They are varied both in nature and in difficulty and yet all tie in nicely together, which is hard to do! So well done, I really liked the ideas and will definitely steal them if the opportunity arise!
