After watching the clip, the pupils could be asked whether they think the children in Marseille liked or disliked the activity. They could choose a reason why from a list of suggested opinions. The clip could be stopped after the 'rush ball' demonstration and pupils could discuss what they think the aim of the game is. After watching the whole clip, pupils could match up the name of each game with the image of the equipment needed for the activity. Discuss with pupils whether they knew any of these activities and encourage them to take a vote to give their opinion on each one by using the French words 'super/ facile / difficile'.
