George Spicer Primary School, Enfield
The North London RIG was hosted by Alex Wilson at George Spicer Primary School. The theme was Developing language in the curriculum 1 – focusing on Mathematics. Dr Frank Monaghan from the Open University drew on the article he had written in EAL Journal: The Language of Mathematics exploring ‘the language used in mathematics’ and suggesting ‘many ways to make lessons more transparent for EAL learners’ which led to a discussion on language development in Maths.
There were updates on the new DfE census requirements, the new NALDIC website, annual conference, EAL Journal, NALDIC membership and regional updates.
In Practitioner perspectives, colleagues were invited to bring and share their good classroom practice.
