YOUNG INTERPRETERS CLUB. YEAR 4 After - School Club Mrs Brown
Children in Year 4 have welcomed visitors to the club. In our first session, Miss Kahn, who is the EAL lead for our borough, kindly joined us to talk about her experiences of learning English as a young child, joining her primary school in England. This session was able to open our eyes to the issues and difficulties that may often be faced by children joining school not speaking or understanding English. Her talk was very moving and enlightening for us all and it gave our ‘Young Interpreters’ ideas as to how we can support new learners of English in our school as well as visitors and help to settle them into the learning environment. We hope that Miss Kahn will be able to join us again.
The ‘Young Interpreters’ were also able to welcome Mr Kavanagh to the club. The children were able to fully appreciate what it may be like for some young new Students who be may be in the early stages of learning English, when he spoke in Gaelic. Children were then able to appreciate the strategies that we can use to support others. During our club it is great to hear so many languages being spoken. Children in Year 4 also learn French, so we have very clever children.
