The aims of this activity are to provide a simple multi-lingual resource,
supported by audio, which helps non-English speaking recent arrivals to gain
basic communication skills.
The activity contains sets of simple animations and images that express words
or phrases commonly found in and around the school. When an image is clicked on,
a phrase is 'spoken' which describes that animation. This is particularly useful
with younger children who may have limited language skills. They can play with
the activity to find the phrase they want then 'tell' the teacher or a friend
what they want to express. This gives them a voice which in other circumstances
they may lack.
The activity contains over 45 phrases using 9 different scenes and is
available in Bengali, English, Gujarati, Mirpuri, Punjabi and Urdu.
The activity was devised by Ruth Davies.
