Here is the transcript from the video: 

Yesterday I went for a walk in th country.

It was a lovely Autumn day.

The sky was blue and the sun glinted through the trees.

I walked down a road lined with autumnal trees their leaves turning from green to gold.

I passed a woodcutter’s yard with logs of wood piled high.

Then I turned into a lane

I saw two cows walking across a field.  One was white and the other brown.

The floor beneath the giant fir trees was littered with fir cones. 

The lane led me into an oak wood..

The floor was littered with acorns which crunched beneath my feet.

I picked some acorns up and put them into my bag. 

Further along the lane I saw a farmhouse and round the corner were two dogs.

The dogs were barking.

Nestled in the hills was a farm. 

It was a beautiful clear day and I could see for miles and miles.

For a while I sat and enjoyed the view .

On the way back I saw lots of toadstools and a  butterfly.

As I rounded the corner the village of Castel Rigone and it’s beautiful church came into view.

In the distance I could see  Lake Trasimeno. 

Then I found myself on the main road again. 

I walked past  a round church with a beautiful bell tower. 

Past the car park and the football ground. 

Past the church and the supermarket.

Then I was back home.

Food! Lesson Two 

​​
This is the second lesson of three on food for children who are learning to speak English. 

The video programme introduces a variety of different foods plus phrases used at the table. 

It is presented by Lizzie Witch and the JUMBLE Toys and is sure to be a ‘hit’ with young children who will enjoy interacting and responding. 

I believe that young children should learn to speak English  naturally through play activities. Through watching, listening, copying, doing and not ‘by the book’ .  Grammar can wait. It’s more important to enjoy and have the confidence to communicate. 

Suggestions for parents and teachers:

Set up a ‘role play’ area. A table with some ‘play’ foods or pictures of food so they can act out the scenes shown on the video. 

Foods can be modelled from playdough. 

For older children make labels of the different foods. 

Make a snakes and ladders game with pictures of different foods. 

Use the vocabulary at meal times and when you go shopping. 

The best way to learn anything is to teach it!  A toy school can be set up with your child as the teacher.
