EAL – English Additional Language

We have regular Multi-Language Storytelling sessions in the Library at lunchtime, which has been a huge success. Both children and teachers shared stories in a variety of different languages, such as Polish, Spanish, French, German, Albanian, Arabic, Chinese and Japanese.
If any parents or members of the community would like to come in and share a story with the children, then do not hesitate to get in touch with our school librarian, Mrs Maskell.
