What do you teach EAL new arrivals with limited English?

If you have EAL new arrivals in your school with limited English, you need a scheme of work that supports them with language learning, alongside the curriculum content you are delivering. This way, you can ensure your young learners have the basics of the language needed for success.
Learning can be split into two parts:
  1. Survival Language, otherwise known as basic interpersonal communication skills (BICS).
  2. The language needed for success in academic studies, known as cognitive academic language proficiency (CALP).

(See Cummins for further discussion of this)

The free-to-download scheme of work accompanying this article aims to provide learners with the Survival Language they need for later success with academic language. The scheme is split into sessions.
