Classroom Ideas

Before watching, pupils could read a simplified version in English of the Aesop's fable. Pupils could be asked to explain in their own words the moral message of the story and to give their opinion about it. After watching the clip, pupils could then discuss the differences between the clip and the original version of the story. Pupils could be encouraged to use some of the language in the clip in their PE lessons such as the numbers 1-4 and the French for 'ready steady go'.
