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.

This clip can be used to spark creative writing: children could write a short email in German to Lars or Kathi telling them about their own sports day - what activities do they do, do they normally come first, second, third, what do they enjoy?
Write out the key words and phrases on the IWB and play the clip with the audio turned down. Invite the pupils to be sports commentators describing what they see on the screen.
Look at ordinal numbers in German - can the children guess how they continue after 'der dritte'?
