The magic cat: 7 – How can we get back home?

A song video and related lesson resources that introduces transport and travelling vocabulary, for beginner-level young learners.

Learn how to talk about different colours, with Tom, Jess and Puzzleberry, the magic cat.

This lesson, which is based around the short song video available to watch or download below, focuses on learning vocabulary for using different types of transport and ways of travelling, e.g. How do you get to school? I get to school by bike. How does Sarah get to school? She walks. Along with the video, below are all the materials necessary for a full 45–60 minute lesson: teacher’s notes, student worksheets and a PowerPoint presentation. We hope you enjoy them!
