Description: The bingo game has been devised to encourage pupils to explore the theme of growing vegetables in relation to the Giant Turnip book. The matching activity reinforces the learning of core words from the story.  You might like to devise other ways of playing the game or substitute the vegetables with ones that pupils might be more familiar with. You can buy the Giant Turnip book in various dual language editions from the books section of this site.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will have familiarised themselves with the key vocabulary from the story in a fun way, as well as developing an understanding of what plants need to grow. They will have had the opportunity to practice language structures as outlined in the core text information.

If you are a subscriber to the Collaborative Learning library (£110 membership with a FREE PENpal with labels and software), then you can download the pdf free of charge and print it out. But frankly, it is cheaper to buy the pack: all prints are made on cards which are longer lasting than photocopying paper. The cards are sound enabled for PENpal adding an extra dimension of narration, in English and other languages. All pictures are illustrated by professional artists. Game boards are laminated. Playing cards are perforated to give each a square edge.  

The whole package not only looks highly professional, but will last much longer. Every component is stored in an accompanying sealable plastic bag for easy retrievability. 

Each activity can be found in other languages using shared audio files for PENpal. So a Polish teacher, or Polish speaking Buddy, or a Polish EAL coordinator can translate key words and rules in Polish, and upload their version for others to share with the FREE ShareLINK software that comes with PENpal. If you have bought the activity you can also play it in Polish or any other language. Click here to find out more about ShareLINK.
