One Pen, One Die Challenge ? ?

Fun in Year 10 with a ‘one pen, one die challenge’. This is a really good way to practise translation skills under pressure. Each student has a number of sentences to translate using familiar vocabulary

Sounds straightforward enough? Well, it is until they are put under pressure as they can only write until their partner throws a six and grabs the pen to work on their own sentences! Pupils enjoy the game element but learn some of the skills they will need in exams when they have to work accurately but within time constraints.
