Main Aims

  • To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about Health and wellbeing

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of Health and wellbeing


Lead in (5-7 minutes) • To lead Ss in the context topic.

I play two minutes video clip for a nursery teacher teaching toddlers how to use hummer and nails. Asking them to talk about it & how they can see that dangerous or not. I give them 2 minutes to discuss together about their opinion and would they agree to do the same with their children. Then I let them talk about each others thoughts.

pre-teach vocabulary (8-10 minutes) • To prevent Ls blocking on unknown vocabulary in the context of Health and wellbeing

I show Ss pictures of the new vocabulary electing the meaning of them. I clarify the meaning using ccqs to make sure of understanding. I drill the words clearly to get the correct pronunciation. I write the form of the vocabulary on board highlighting the stress of the words asking them to write it down to solve any problem with the form.

Gist task (6-8 minutes) • To give Ls a reason to read the text.

I ask students to read the text to answer a question that is: " Tell me if the writer is with or against risky games for children."

Detailed task (8-10 minutes) • I give the students a reason to read the text.

I ask them to read the questions in the handout activity. I ask them to reread the text scanning for detailed information to answer. I give them one minute to check in pairs and discuss answers. I give feed back with controlled practice.

Follow up (8-10 minutes) • To give Ls the chance to respond to the text / To balance productive and receptive skills

I ask SS to think individually about their opinion towards the topic. Then they discuss in pairs about that. Then feedback is followed.
