KS3 English Speaking and Listening - Mum's Birthday



This classroom resource is designed for developing English speaking and listening skills at Key Stage 3, showing a dramatic scene with an open ending, which allows secondary pupils to decide what happens next.

Tom and his friend Courteney are playing with their skateboards when Tom mentions he has to go home for his mum's birthday. Courteney asks to come and meet his parents, but Tom is reluctant.

The video ends when Courteney unexpectedly arrives at Tom's house with two presents. Pupils can then discuss what happens next, with the help of prompting questions.
