We meet two primary school pupils, Kathi and Nils, and watch them take part in their school's sports day. Various events take place and the children are told their places. At the end, we hear what grades they think they will be awarded in PE as a result of their sports day performance. Commentary in German and English.

Compare sports day at your school and sports day in Germany as portrayed in the clip. What is the same? What is different? eg students not wearing any school uniforms.
Ask the children to listen out for the sports activities as introduced in the captions, repeat them and match them to the English words provided on cards or IWB. Discuss their favourite or least favourite sports activity using the phrases 'ich mag ...' and 'ich mag .... nicht'.
