## Children's club Functional English writing task

Submitted by Alison Hastilow on Sun, 2013-04-07 18:39

#### Resource type: Revision material, Worksheet or assignment, Writing prompts

Students design a board game to demonstrate their learning. This can incorporate IT skills (Word template provided below) or can be done with paper, card and pens.

I originally did this with an E2E group and it proved popular. It’s an alternative to the “design a poster” task to review learning. The instructions are set out as a board game. it can be used for literacy, numeracy, ICT or ESOL.
