Specially recorded for National Storytelling week - enjoy listening to Christophe telling you the story!

It's the same as the animated version - but obviously without the picture, text and animation clues to aid understanding.

The video could be used on its own as a listening activity for more confident learners or as a follow on to the animated version.

Learners could be encouraged to participate and demonstrate their understanding of the story by holding up the character and location cards every time they hear them in the video. They could work in pairs on the word mats, pointing out the characters or actions in the baking sequence as they are mentioned.

Puppets and masks could also be used in this way - see animation page for downloads.
