EAL in Drama and Music

Description

Lisa Zimmermann uses music as a means of communication at an after-school project for primary pupils who have English as an additional language.

Each week a specially written song demonstrates how the language is used, and the children learn the song and practice using the grammar it illustrates.

At the end of the 10 week course, the result is a mini-opera about a princess who has a red nose, and Lisa's 35 pupils use the songs and language they've learned.

The event also showcases the effect the after-school club, which is sponsored by one of Bristol's Extended Schools Partnerships and Sing Up, Music Manifesto's National Singing Programme, has had on the wider school community.
