Postman Pat and the Tricky Transport Day - video lesson


I prepare video lessons for my young learners every week and my personal collection of video activities has been growing fast. The new cartoon I am going to prepare lessons on is the great UK series " Postman Pat". Here´s the first one:

The episode is called: Postman Pat and the Tricky Transport Day


It´s a wonderful opportunity for you, lovely teachers, to pre-teach different "Means of transport" and talk about WINTER.

Then you can ask the students to watch the video and do the following gap-filling activity:

Watch the video and fill in the gaps with an appropriate word:

  1. I´ve got to do my …………..first, Julian.

  2. The roads are clear, Jess, in ………… of the snow.

  3. It will take me ……….. to do the deliveries on foot.

  4. Oh, no, we´ve got a………………. .

  5. Yes, of course, we´ll put the bike on ………………. .

  6. Take my ……………. , it will take you there in no time.

  7. You can ……………. my roller-blades, if you like.

Answers: 1- rounds, 2- spite, 3- ages, 4- puncture, 5- board, 6- sledge, 7- borrow, 8- public

The way I proceed with the video is:

First we read the sentences and I make sure the students understand the vocabulary. Then I play it once and they have to fill in the missing words. I play the video once again so that they can check or fill in any missed gaps.

As a folow up activity you can ask them to retell the story. They can also write down 5 True/False statements. Then they can exchange their notebooks and do the exercise.

Here´s a link to the video:


Enjoy the lesson with your students

Best wishes,

Teacher Russie
