This activity could be done with whole class response (everyone recalling each of the utterances all together) ,
or with group responses (each group recalling one of the utterances)
Or with solo responses (challenging pupils’ memory!)

The animation introduces a memory palace with a logical chain; pause the animation between utterances to encourage recall of the chain, or return to an earlier utterance as needed

As a follow-up pairs or small groups could do a shared reading aloud – play the animation without the sound so that they can practise their reading / speaking grapheme / phoneme skills

This is a memory training text, telling a story as it leads through a pictorial representation of places.

It is therefore useful for training memory skills, but it also includes more than a list of nouns, so it can have a grammatical focus on eg prepositions or adjectives

Pupils view and listen
They build confidence by interpreting what they see and hear

They read the texts aloud with the sound turned down

At next viewing they predict what will come next in the list and practise accuracy by trying to get the correct prepositions

They see a printout of the text and sequence the captions
