Music and EAL

£30.00 Inc VAT

Learn how to use music as a universal language in your setting. Music builds strong cognitive foundations for language development which can particularly support children and parents with English as an Additional Language (EAL).

This webinar will be held on Monday 15th January 2024 at 7-8:15pm


Early Years Consultant Sue Asquith will share the benefit of her experience working in the UK and internationally in multi-lingual early years settings. Sue will review activities that work well to aid communication and group bonding between children and educators who do not share the same language. She will look at statutory guidance in this area and examples of best practice, signposting resources.

Tasha will look at how children acquire language and how they process music making activities to explain the overlap. She will talk about Boogie Mites experience leading multi-lingual parent education courses in Portsmouth and London. She will cover three Boogie Mites songs with different cultural roots or language.

You will have access to a recording of the session for one week after the live date and access to the stories and songs forever.
