  10. 10. Cloze Procedure Also known as fill in the blanksA cloze procedure is a "fill-in-the-blanks"activity where the learner uses clues from thecontext to supply words that have beendeliberately removed from the text.
  11. 11. Why use it?Using cloze-procedure helps pupils with theirreading and writing.Using this activity will help support learners inlooking at either semantic patterns orsentence structure.Writing is the hardest skill for bilingual pupilsto master so it is important to scaffold writingtasks by using writing frames, matching wordsto pictures and using cloze procedures.
  12. 12. Think, Pair, ShareHow and why? Each child has a nominated talk partner. Partners change every half term. Strategies such as ‘think, pair and share’ encourage EAL pupils to have a chance to interact and voice an opinion. The use of first language for learning is acknowledged and children are able to choose which language they want to discuss concepts in before sharing their thoughts with the class in English, to aid their understanding.
