In term 2 I held an afternoon tea for the families of children who attend EAL/D lessons. We had a small, but very welcome, group of parents who met over a cup of tea, to hear a little bit about what children might do in a lesson.

This week we found a great sentence from a book by Margaret Wild and Julie Vivas called “Puffling”. We looked at all the parts of the sentence and labelled the nouns, verbs, adjectives and other grammar features. This will help to make the children more aware of these language features and use them in their own writing.
