Lesson 6 | 30 minutes
Language presenter film track
Ask the class to sit where they can see the screen easily.
Show the clip and invite the children to repeat the new words and phrases while pointing to their ears, nose, eyes, mouth and face with the presenter.
Rhyme I am happy
Repeat the rhyme activity from lesson one.
Invite the class to stand where they can see you. Remind the class that our happiness shows on our face. Elicit the word for smile as smile.
Explain that you would like to repeat the gestures learnt in Lesson 1 of this unit to match the words in the rhyme. Start by smiling, then point to each part of your face as you hear the word in the rhyme: mouth, eyes, nose.
If it is helpful, demonstrate by pointing to the smile and other features on the flashcard face.
Rhyme - I am happy
Be a monkey!
Prepare a selection of flashcards in a box or lucky dip bag to include: hand, head, eyes, nose, mouth, smile, feet plus car, ball, farmer, bus.
Show the monkey flashcard and explain that you need to find the cards that make up a monkey for Tom and Keri.
Invite a pupil to come and pick a card, show the class and tell everyone what it is.
Place the monkey flashcard in the circle. If the item forms part of a monkey, the child places the selected card on the monkey. If not, it goes back in the box.
Once you have built the monkey with all 7 flashcards, allow the pupils to dance like a monkey to celebrate!
Clear away the cards and praise everyone.
Lesson 7 | 15 mins
Invite everyone to sit in a circle.
Place a selection of flashcards face up in the circle. These should all be laid out in groups or lexical sets that are not grouped together red, yellow, blue; bus, car, train; rain, sun, rainbow; pig, cow, duck; 1, 2, 3; eyes, noes, mouth; head, hand foot; ball, book, soldier and so on.
Note: You may decide not to put all sets out at once. Perhaps put out two or three group sets only at a time.
Repeat with as many volunteers as possible in the time available.
Lesson 8 | 15 mins
Use a transition action to move to the tables. Perhaps invite the class to mime being a monkey – or if this is too noisy, just to smile politely at each other as they walk to the tables!
Give each child the Pupil’s Book page and pencils.
See if anyone can remember the word for the game pieces - puzzles
Demonstrate completing the monkey’s face by tracing around the features.
Check that the pupils have completed the sheet correctly.
Hold up a sheet and point to each of the parts of the face. Invite the class to call out what each facial feature is called in English and repeat eyes, nose, mouth, ears, face and smile.
Lesson 9 | 15 mins
Pin the face part flashcards face up on the board so that the lexical set forms a face with eyes, ear, nose, mouth.
Take one card away and ask what is missing. Elicit the face part. Put it back and remove another part.
Extend the activity by adding the hands and feet flashcards from Level A, plus the hat. Continue to remove and replace the cards.
Extend the activity again by putting a card back in the wrong place. Ask a pupil to tell you what it is and show you where on the board it should go. This links English with general knowledge.
Lesson 10 | 15+ mins
Craft Online Resource sheet [Animal masks]
Choose to repeat an activity from the first four lessons or complete this activity.
Invite the pupils to sit at the tables, using a transition action or song.
Hand out colouring pencils and the online resource sheet animal masks.
Revise the key features with the class as they make the masks: eyes, nose, mouth, face, ears.
Invite the class to sit where they can see you.
Hold up the character and animal flashcards covered by a blank card.
Gradually reveal a part of a character card and invite the class the chant Who’s that? Who’s that? Then guess the name as soon as possible.
