Abstract [en]

Young children are active learners, thus they have better academic outcomes when participating in activities including physical activities, dance or play. Such a program is the Joggy Bear Education (JBE) program, which was designed as an alternative educational intervention program for young children. Children with English as Additional Language (EAL) living in the UK may face more difficulties and have lower academic performance. This empirical study uses secondary data from the ‘’JBE program’’ research study and focuses on 59 children with EAL living in the UK, aiming to explore the impact of EAL on the acquisition of literacy, mathematics and handwriting for young children, the relationships among EAL, auditory memory and early years’ learning tasks, as well as the effectiveness of the JBE program on the early learning skills of children with EAL attending the Reception and Year 1 classes. For the data analysis procedure several statistical techniques were used. Results showed firstly that children with EAL had better performance in Spelling, Mathematics and Handwriting than children whose first language was English, subsequently that there was no impact found of EAL on the auditory memory and lastly that the JBE program had significant effects on the Handwriting skills of children with EAL who received the intervention in the first year of the study. However, further research is needed to relate these finding to children’s background information by exploring the family’s involvement and influence, including also a larger sample.
