- (Activities to familiarise the children with British culture.)
Point to the title and say: An ice treat! Children repeat, chorally and individually. Explain what a treat is. Then point to the picture and say: Look at the ice cream van! Children repeat, chorally and individually.
- Tell children that the ice cream van is a tradition in Britain. It’s a treat for children to hear the ice cream van approaching and buy ice cream on a hot summer day. Ask children if they have ice cream vans in their country. What other treats can children name? Have a discussion, in L1 if necessary.
- Optional: Hand out sheets of paper to children and ask them to draw a treat in their country. Once they finish they present their drawings to the class.
