You can reply to the teacher out loud just like a real lesson! When it says ‘Your turn’ write your answer in your book then mark in green pen when the teacher tells you the answer.

Your Activity-  Resume the video and listen to the teacher explain the task.


Plan your ideas just like the teacher has. You could create some bullet points or a mind map in your book to help you think of ideas. You may find it helpful to think of your 5 senses and use those to help you plan what you can smell, see, hear, touch, feel.


The teacher also provides a list of some good vocabulary you could use on one of the slides too.
