      I’ve updated my presentation. I do think it’s good to check student knowledge at the start of a topic to assess how to conduct the lesson.


      Having just explained how the word order changes in a passive sentence, it seems like a good place here to practise more of the same using an unjumbling activity.


      Students enjoy an element of competition and so I’ve included a cloze activity at the end of the slides for them to practise using the passives with different tenses. Hopefully, this rounding off activity helps them to think why the passive is used, how it is constructed and how it affect the sentence structure.

      I found it very difficult to think of sentences. Does this get easier with practice?
