The Surrey REMA Team has been looking at ways we can support schools at this time.
As you will be aware, in the case of both EAL and GRT pupils, it is particularly important that their language skills continue to develop even though they are not in school. For EAL pupils, continued development of their first language is also key, as this will support their acquisition of English.
Some members of the REMA Specialist Teaching Team have put together ideas for parents and carers to use at home so they can enable the continued development of their children’s language and knowledge base. The attached documents contain suggested activities and strategies as well as links to relevant online material.
We hope you will find these helpful.
The REMA Team wishes you and your school community all the best.
