Claremont Primary and Nursery School

A Brighter Future for Everyone

EAL (English as an additional language)

Welcome to the EAL page!


At Claremont we celebrate the diversity of our pupils and this page is dedicated to our EAL pupils, who have English as an additional language and come to Claremont from around the world!



Our EAL specialist is Mrs Firzana Khalid, she works closely with our teachers to ensure our EAL children have an appropriate induction process and assists with their English speech and language progress. 


Mrs Khalid has worked at the school for 19 years and is passionate about helping children meet their full potential.


At the moment Mrs Khalid is  teaching English to our EAL pupils. They are learning:


  • to talk about themselves in english

  • how to greet people

  • naming the different areas of the school and knowing what happens there e.g.. assemblies in the hall,  dining hall for dinner times

  • the names of their teachers






Fairy Tales


We have been looking at traditional fairy tales. We have been learning about:

  • story language. "Once upon a time..."
  • characters in a story.
  • Story recounts.
  • linking our own experiences to a story. 

We made beautiful lanterns to celebrate Chinese New Year. We also tried to write some Chinese words, but we think we’ll stick to English though :)

Do you cross the road safely? As a part of the Safety Week we talked about being safe on the road. We watched a story about Dino the dog who had lots of good advice….

Let’s learn some shapes! This time we’ve been learning about 2-D and 3-D shapes. Now we can recognize and name lots of shapes, and even make some out of playdough 

It’s Spoooky Time! We love Halloween!

Our trip to Goose Fair

On Friday 2nd October, some children went on a trip to Goose Fair. We wanted to find out what was there. 

We have been learning the name of the rooms in our home.

We've been learning the names of items in our home. Also how to answer questions about our home. 
We worked in pairs to cut and stick items in the home and talked about which room we thought they belonged in. 

Bianca in 5LP drew this wonderful picture of rooms in her house. 



We asked lots of "where" and "what" questions.
