This short reading book has been written to teach reading to older EAL students who are new to English, to further develop phonics and vocabulary. This may be particularly useful for students who have had little or no formal education in their home country. Comprehension activities are provided to help with grammar and understanding. ‘Dreaming on a Bus’ is aimed at secondary age pupils, but may also be suitable for KS2. It is for students who are still learning basic phonics and are at the early stages of learning English. CLAS Readers have been written by specialist teachers of English as an Additional Language, after noticing that there are no age appropriate easy readers for learners of EAL. These books are based on the first 1000 words (beginning with the first 100), and also include common sight words and phonics. They are divided into five levels introducing more vocabulary and more complex grammatical structures. This is suitable for: • EAL students (new to English, early stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible. We have many more resources for early stage learners of English as an additional language in our TES shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/clas3

Basic World map and UK map- Knowledge of place for EAL new arrivals.

(0)
Geography activity/ lesson starter/ homework/revision on basic map skills and knowledge of places aimed at EAL learners with limited prior education • World map- This resource can be used with all students. EAL students, especially those with no formal education, often come with little knowledge of place. Students learn the names of continents and oceans and then learn how to describe where they are on the map. Some EAL students who are new arrivals have not studied Geography so have no experience of looking at maps. This will help them to place themselves in the world and in this country. • British Isles map- Students name the major towns, cities and seas. They learn the compass points and how to use them by describing where one place is in relation to another. • Students often do not know the difference between the British Isles, UK and Great Britain. In the activity they have to identify these. The resources can be used to reinforce and check knowledge in KS2, KS3 and KS4. This is suitable for: • The whole class • EAL students ( early stage, advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Individual students who need to catch up • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible

Solving GCSE Maths word problems: template and worked examples for 30 questions

(1)
This resource provides a template and highly structured approach to solving 30 GCSE word problems. More and longer word problems in the new maths GCSE reduce the students’ ability to succeed purely on the basis of their maths ability; an increased level of English mastery is now required. There are 30 GCSE word problems included and the approach aims to allow such problems to be tackled more methodically and with greater confidence. The resource contains: • A copy of the approach sheet • Two copies of 30 GCSE questions (the second one provides a model for underlining). • Worked solutions for each problem, using the approach sheet with answers • A PowerPoint containing the questions and answers on the template sheet • A scaffold for less confident students, modelling how to organise and diagrammatically represent the information from the question and allowing the students to do the calculations. • A rationale explaining the theory behind each stage on the template. There is also a list of common-usage words that regularly appear in word problems. As well as being suitable for the whole class, this would be particularly useful for: • EAL students (advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible.
