Begin by teacher modelling the sounds and actions for parts of the body
Pupils view / listen to the song and do the correct action when they hear / see the relevant words.

By introducing ‘dein’ alongside ‘mein’ I can set up challenges whereby Pupil 1 says ‘Dein Finger’ or ‘Deine Finger’ and Pupils 2 has to respond accurately
