Postman Pat – Special delivery, A Bouncy Castle.
Hi inspiring teachers,
It´s almost the end of the school year and I guess some of you are getting ready for the ”End of the school year" party. An exciting moment for both teachers and students. The new episode of “Postman Pat" is based around this topic. It is called: Postman Pat – Special delivery, A Bouncy Castle.
Here´s the lesson plan:
As a warm-up activity ask your students to brainstorm different ideas about how they would like to celebrate the end of the school party. Put down their ideas on the board and vote for the best one.
Then pre-teach some of the vocabulary from the episode:
A bouncy castle, a plaster, to squeak, a leaf blower
3. Hand out the worksheet with the exercise and tell the students that these are the main events from the episode. While watching they have to put them in the correct order. Go through the sentences and clarify any unfamiliar vocabulary.
