Aims and objectives
This activity is primarily aimed at younger pupils where English
is not their first language. It is intended as a support to encourage
children to identify and learn the names of the different body parts
in both spoken and written form. The languages supported are: Bengali,
English, Gujurati, Mirpuri, Punjabi and Urdu.
No previous knowledge is required for this resource.
In the classroom
This is a simple drag and drop activity which matches words with
pictures and is aimed at supporting EAL speakers. Clicking on the
words and pictures of the body parts provide audio as well as visual
clues to encourage language development. Although supporting Literacy
and community languages the activity also meets elements of the
Science programmes of study.
This resource can be used by individual pupils, as an aid to developing
language skills, or in small groups to encourage talk and language
practice. It can also be used for larger group work if an interactive
whiteboard is available.
|Support materials description:
|The parts_of_the_body.pdf contains an annotated
picture of a person with blank labels. Pupils can complete the
labels to identify the different body parts. A completed version
is included which, if printed onto card and laminated, can be
used to either support pupils with their work or used as part
of a display.
