Photos and pictures to match with accounts of real emergency situations. All in the present tense. All the accounts are true. Accounts can be cut in to strips and given to pairs of learners who can put them in to a sequence to tell a story. Leads to discussion on how we tell a story, and how we sequence sentences to make sense.
Lots of new, real life vocabulary to provoke discussion.
Some stories shorter and simpler than others to allow for differentiation in group.
Could be used as a spring-board for class discussion or class writing if learners wish to share their own experiences, depending on ability and group dynamics.
Follows on from the 999 Emergency materials developed by David Kirwan.

Physical format: 
page of photos and pictures, pages of accounts written in strips in large font to be cut up.
