Follow the instructions (prepositions practice)
The students must follow the instructions to complete the rooms. Then, I get them to compare their finished pictures with a partner and discuss any differences. Next they are given any three of the diagrams and they write descriptions. I got the pictures from clker.com apart from the last one; don´t know where that´s from.

The Supporting Act
This is a short clip by the BBC, which they will play between programmes till Christmas, when they will add to it... It is 2:01 minutes long and quite touching. No dialogue, so great for teaching English. Good practice for both present tenses. I would give each student 3 or 4 questions to answer, or else, several viewings! Key included.

Five good witches for Halloween
A short RC and match-up activity. Thanks to Elisabeth Alba for permission to use this lovely picture. Why ever these ´good´ witches are holding innocent toads over a boiling cauldron, I don´t know. I don´t think they mean any real harm;-)))

How did you do this year?
It´s the end of the academic year in some parts and a chance for the students to have a bit of self reflection time. The language used is the language of assessment and although I have prepared this for native speakers, I hope it might be useful for some of you.

Christmas ´Guess who I am?´ or ´Guess what I am?´

Christmas Activities
There are some great cliparts on here! I have set the activities/questions to fly in. You might want to just show the images first and get the pupils to describe them. Or play ´Splat!´ Two pupils come to the board. Teacher describes an image. The pupil to touch it first is the winner.
