Dynamic and engaging crafts, worksheets, games and flashcards to help kids learn and practise language and skills for a fun restaurant performance. They make their own props as they go too!

What will my students learn?

The activities create opportunities for children to build vocabulary and:

  • express wants, preferences & desires
  • express likes / dislikes
  • talk about frequency
  • ask for information and make requests
  • make complaints

You can easily prepare for a school show without the stress and really showcase what your students can do in English. The activities can be used independently, however, and do not necessarily have to end in a performance. 

SEE the Preview for full details of the vocabulary and structures targetted.

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.
