Before watching the clip, pupils could revise all the weather phrases they know by doing an exercise matching up French weather phrases with their English equivalents. Students could then play a miming game - with or without props - to go over the pronunciation of the key weather phrases. Pupils could then make a note of, and discuss the extreme weather mentioned in the clip. Pupils could research the clothes needed in different weather conditions. The link between how people feel and the weather could be discussed and pupils could write a short poem or rap about it using a simple model such as "Quand il fait... , je me sens".
