Here’s a game to try out that links with the linguistic stand of the framework:
What’s the word?
Played in groups of 3- 6. Provide each group with a Newsome of words cards. These could feature objects such as a map or an aeroplane. A player must describe what is on the card without saying the actual word and without gestures actions.
Variations of the game could include subject specific or technical vocabulary you would like the children to learn.
To be successful children must reach for alternative vocabulary in order to describe the word on the card.
