ESL Games Plus
This is a great website for EAL pupils of all levels, with lots of games and activities aimed at improving vocabulary, spelling, and reading. Most of the games and activities tie in with the 13 themes taught to EAL pupils in Stratford.

The 'Classroom Games', 'Memory Games', 'Sentence Monkey'  and 'Pirate Board Game' sections are particularly useful (please scroll down slightly to see them).

Oxford Owls 
Once you create an account on this website (it's free) you will be able to access lots of ebooks for children from ages 3-11. Children can also hear the various books being read to them which helps with sight words, pronunciation and vocabulary.

Starfall is a useful literacy website wherein pupils can progress through four stages of learning - from ABCs to reading different types of texts. This is done through games, songs, activities and interactive stories.

ESL Kidstuff
This website features a variety of online games covering simple EAL beginner topics such as the alphabet, numbers and colours.

British Council - LearnEnglish Kids
This website has six main areas aimed at helping children to practise English in fun ways: Listen and Watch, Read and Write, Speak and Spell, Grammar and Vocabulary, Fun and Games, and Print and Make.

Childtopia Stories
This site features roughly 30 short stories. When the child selects a story, she or he can listen to it being read to them with accompanying pictures and cartoons. Words are highlighted as they are being read, which aids the improvement of pronunciation and reading skills. The children can then engage in either listening or reading comprehension activities based on the story they have just read.
