Put the students into pairs (if you are continuing from the stages above, it might be worth having them in the same pairs for the team games). In each pair, sit one student with their back to the TV/ projector screen. If there is one group of three, two of the three sit so that they cannot see the TV.
The one student in each group who can see what is happening will describe what they can see to their partner. The person listening can ask them questions about what is happening, but they cannot tell them anything that is written on their worksheets or ask the person watching to make predictions. When the teacher pauses the tape, let them describe what they can see on the paused screen for a few seconds and then tell all the people watching the video to be quiet. The people with their back to the screen should then choose one of the sentences they have on their worksheet (see below) as their prediction for what will happen next, and tell the teacher what their prediction is. Whether you want them to just use “will” or also the phrases above is up to you, but if you are going to do this and Video 4 it is probably worth doing one of each again as with Videos 1 and 2.
Places to pause the tape, with answers:
1. Pause as the driver is just about to restart the truck thing.- It will crash into the pram
2. Don’t restart the video. – He will cry
3. Pause as Pingu is walking away from the baby for the first time. – He will get a drum to play with
4. Pause as the baby looks at the trolley full of toys. – He will push the trolley over
5. Pause as the father stops outside the shop. – He will buy a present
6. Pause before the baby opens the present – There will be a cuddly toy inside
7. Pause after Pingu gives his bike to the baby – He will cheer up
8. Pause when the baby is riding the bicycle – He will crash into a snowman
Pingu Gets a Bicycle Will for predictions (Video 3)
Student Worksheet (for “blind” students only)
Read through the worksheet and ask your teacher about any words you don’t understand.
Listen to your partner explaining what is happening in the video WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE SCREEN. You can ask your partner questions about what is happening, but you can’t tell them what is written on your worksheet or ask for their predictions of what will happen next.
When the teacher pauses the video, choose one of sentences below and tell the class your prediction. Your partner will then watch the next segment and check whether your prediction is correct or not.
Here are the sentences that you can take your predictions from. 4 of them do not happen in the film. Read through them carefully before the video starts.
1. He will push the trolley over
2. He will punch someone
