Using Technology to Support EAL Learners in Primary Schools

An easy use resource which is full of apps/ extensions/websites to support EAL learners to  develop their English skills and to access the curriculum.  This is a ‘live’ document which will be updated regularly so we would recommend that you store it in Google Drive.

Online Flashcards with audio

In Teddy Talk, Big Bear Banter and the induction packs for P4-7 and Secondary we have all used flashcards to learn new vocabulary.

MES have now put their flashcards online with audio. Great for use on chromebooks and during the current online learning. (slight warning in that uses American english so need to be careful using some of the vocabulary for UK English speakers eg trousers – pants)
