In this lesson plan pupils have to help make a happy couple’s wedding day extra special by using their language skills to translate well wishes from abroad from long lost friends and reminisce about days gone by through helping the best man write prompts for his speech; before finally writing their review of the big day on a wedding cake template.
As the topics of the new GCSE have widened, so must our approach to exposing new and varied vocabulary, so teaching this kind of lesson whilst reinforcing the required grammar elements allows scope for interesting vocabulary outside of the normal realms that textbooks can offer.
