Railway Stations, Platforms, and Trains

A collection of photos I am curating for my students for the next term as we explore Great Britain and the topic of journeys and travel, as well as the introduction of the railway across Britain in the Victorian era. My students will use these photos as part of their own projects and presentations and to explore locations in Britain and the kinds of holiday activities you might find in each place. I hope that you will find these photos useful with your own students. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com).

Truth or Dare - suitable for KS2 and KS3

Truth or Dare - suitable for KS2 and KS3

Simple game of 'Truth or Dare'. I have generally thought of this as an older game. But for promoting as a speaking activity to encourage reluctant learners or ESL students, it's super.I have played this with my summer school class consisting of a mixed group of year 3, 6 and 8 students in Spain. Some of the students in my group attend our British International School and some do not. However, the language level is quite good, but it is also a way of encouraging new language vocabulary and skills. I have included a game board, Truth question cards and forfeit cards. There is also a die template just in case you haven't got a handful of dice at the ready. My students also really enjoyed rolling an odd number to have to do a forfeit! They are pretty funny! This would be an ideal resource for ESL, EAL as well as English or PSHE. It's also something fun to play on a Friday afternoon in smaller groups when you just can't anymore.... LOL... Enjoy!
