Welcome to the
Marlborough EAL Learning Platform
We have lots of resources available, to lend to schools, to aid teaching children who are learning English as their second language. These range from puppets, games and books for Primary children to folding geometric shapes, books on famous people (e.g.Gandhi, Marco Polo) and other items suitable for Key Stage3.
We also have 16 talking pens available to lend to schools in our area. These pens have "sound files" on them and each pen can hold over 100 minutes of sound files. We have many dual language books and the pens are a fantastic addition, so that teachers, children and parents can hear stories read in both their own language or English at the touch of a button!
Our resource centre is open to visitors by appointment only.
Please telephone the school on 01625 383050 to let us know to expect you. If you are unable to visit our centre, but know what you might require, please telephone or email and we can send resources to you through internal mail.
We have been operating since January 2009 and have many items that we think will benefit other schools in their EAL teaching.
Please click on the EAL Catalogue folder at the top left of this page. Our downloadable catalogue shows most of the items that we have available for loan in Word format.
