EAL Semester 1 2019
A warm welcome to our new arrival students and families. At the start of the year we will be doing the Start Up program to develop our social skills and learn how to make friends and keep safe and happy at school.
For literacy we will use the Jolly Phonics Program to learn our letter names/sounds and diagraphs. We will use the Colourful Semantics program to develop our oral language and sentence structure. Furthermore, we will participate in authentic language experiences to develop our vocabulary.
For numeracy we will focus on place value and play games to enhance and engage us whilst learning. We will use concrete materials to support our learning.
For I.C.T we will be focussing on Cyber Safety. We will participate in Hector’s World and use Word to word process.
Our specialists programs will be Library, LOTE, Performing Art and P.E this semester.
Homework will be completed daily and words will be tested weekly. Home readers will be read at home and at school and changed daily.
Looking forward to an exciting semester full of fun and learning with Ms Zainab Assafi supporting students and their families.
