KS3 English Speaking and Listening - Grandma's Junk



This short classroom resource is designed as a lesson starter to inspire a Key Stage 3 English class to discuss how a play might develop, improvising alternative endings while developing speaking-and-listening skills.

Two women are pricing donations for sale in a charity shop. An expert from a museum is browsing the shelves when a young man enters, carrying donations from his grandma.

One item,a stoneware jug, attracts their attention and the expert thinks it might be worth a great deal. What happens next? At this stage, secondary pupils can decide how the story finishes, with the help of prompting questions.
