There is no film with this chapter.

This section includes ideas for additional activities that can be used to consolidate pupils' learning, help you assess their progress, and celebrate just how much they have progressed.

We suggest 4 levels of activities:

  • play "consolidation games" in everyday classwork, to bring together children's learning from previous sections;
  • more extended "cross-curricular projects" using ICT or drama;
  • a "special event" with an audience to celebrate pupils' linguistic achievement and cultural awareness, e.g. a whole-school assembly, an evening with parents, a joint activity with a secondary school;
  • discuss with pupils how to assess their own progress, using "can-do" sheets;

You could plan any such work jointly with secondary colleagues, as a "bridge" to aid children's transition to a new phase in their language learning.
