Sports Day

The sports day was mainly meant to provide students with a fun and enthusiastic atmosphere, enrich them with vocabulary related to sports and sporting events and encourage them to practice the language skills in a relaxing and enjoyable way. The activities included:

-Mix match synonyms

-Match words with pictures

-Running dictation

-Play volley ball & shoot your answers!

Students practiced writing and speaking skills with running dictation, wrapped up their sports day with reading a text about sports celebrities, practiced scanning and matched phrasal verbs related to sports with their definitions. Students really enjoyed running in the yard matching words with pictures, developed a friendly sense of competition and had lots of laughs during the running dictation activity!
