Procedure (51-75 minutes)
Have learners think about an object and have their partners guess it by asking yes/no questions. They cannot use the words yes or no, they are to say, for example "it is", "it is not".
Check who did their homework and elicit answers. Write them on the board.
Show pictures on flipchart page 2 and tell learners today we are going to talk about food. Ask: "Can you cook?". Open the activity and Ss discuss the other questions on the IWB in pairs.
Follow Digital Track procedures on the TG.
Ask learners to copy their answers on to Word Zip 2 as they do the digital activity. Quickly classcheck. Play audio for learners to number the pictures in the order they hear them. Ask them the post-listening questions orally to save time.
Show learners Jamie Oliver's photo on flipchart page and ask them what they know about him. If nobody knows anything about him, tell them yourself and jot some of it down next to his photo. Click on Jamie Oliver's photo to play video of his Feed Me Better school campign. At the end, ask Ss what they think of the campaign. Elicit a few answers.
Tell Ss they are going to read a text to find out more about Jamie and his campaign. Books open to page 14. Ss complete exercise 1.
Refer Ss to the highlighted words in the text. Ask them to circle the correct option. Classcheck.
Focus box. Give learners a list of irregular verbs and draw their attention to the third column. Ask them what those verb forms are called (Past Participles). Then have them complete the focus box with highlighted verbs from #2. Have them compare answers in pairs. Elicit and write the infinitive forms of the verbs used in the Focus box. Use the Interface box to compare it to L1 and ensure understanding. Conduct the TG-suggested transformation drill.
Learners complete the sentences with the past participle of one of the verbs in the box(exercise 5).
Refer Ss to exercise 6 and have them tick and discuss their food preferences on the chart. Round off by asking soeme volunteer Ss to express their preferences. Encourage other Ss to respond to them.
Divide Ss into trios and hand each group an iPad. Tell them launch the PicCollage app because they are going to create a poster suggesting healthier food options for their school canteen (refer them to exercise 7). Remind them to justify their choices. If time allows, get learners to show each other their finished posters and talk about it with other groups.
