What will my students learn?

This pack allows you to be flexible according to your context and the age and level of your students. You can use the activities to help your students prepare for a simple drama performance, or focus on core character and story language. There are also activities that can help you teach language of description and other structures.

See the Possible Language Focus, which is included in the preview, for a full list of the target language points.

Apart from learning language, they’ll develop their fine motor skills, literacy skills, social skills, gain confidence, and develop their understanding of the world.

Comprehensive Activity Suggestions provide lots of ideas for activities to do before and after, and also give you ideas for interactive ways to conduct the activities for effective language practice.

What are the resources?

  • Numbers Jigsaws –  There are three jigsaws to choose from
    depending on level of difficulty. Follow the Activity Suggestions for fun ways to use them in games or as a craft.
  • Mini-books – Differentiate according to abilities in your group by choosing among these four different mini-books. Focus on sequencing, literacy, oral comprehension or production to create fun books that the kids can take home and re-tell the story to their families and friends.
  • Character flap book – This fun and simple flap book creates excellent records of learning that can be used in follow-up games and as a learning support in other activities. The children will get plenty of practice of language to describe possession and appearance.
  • Folding craft – Use to practising sequencing, story retelling and/or to prepare for an easy classroom performance.
  • Stick puppets and 3D theatre craft – A really simple and effective fun craft. The kids will love playing with the characters and reenacting the story. The 3D theatre is simply the four principal scenes in the story, slotted together. Perfect for small world play or story retelling.
  • Story wheel craft – Another great way to review the story and the language. Choose from several variations to create a multi-stage craft that is easy to manipulate. See the Activity Suggestions for fun ideas to do before, during and after.
  • Play script worksheets – Sometimes it’s still nice for the kids and their families to have a simple copy of the complete play script. It doesn’t have to be a boring handout though. Choose the template you want and use in puzzles, gapfills or matching activities.
  • Easy character headbands and props – If you want to bring the story to life through drama or roleplay, these simple headbands and props will do the trick. Print (and colour if using B&W versions) then start playing.
  • Board games – Print and play, or use with the find and stick pictures to have the kids create their own version of this game. Follow the suggestions for ideas to practise language and drama when you land on a space.
  • Write and draw templates – a range of templates, with and without guidelines for kids to complete any related project.
  • Mini-cards – Excellent for a range of games and matching tasks. Sets include key story language and characters and setting vocabulary. Print multiple sets for pair and small group work.
