I have an observation on Tuesday and am doing the first lesson in the shirt machine. I was just thinking before we watch the video of showing a picture of the door of the shed with the signs on it, discussing in partners what they think might be in the shed and why they think this (5mins) ! Then watch the video twice, as they never can get it all in the first viewing (10 mins). After the video role play how they might explore the shed and the machine, look for facial expressions and body gestures (10 mins). Then in pairs brainstorming the ledger - what might be inside it, how does the shirt maker feel about the ledger etc. (15 mins) Plenary Share notes and ideas as a class, create a class brainstorm (10 mins). If you have done the shirt machine before, I would appreciate some comments on my ideas. Many thanks.
