Here are the key points and activities from the video:

- Add the new vocabulary from today’s session to you mind map (or underneath if, you are running out of room). Don’t forget to put it into a sentence.

- Think about synonyms (other words with the same or similar meaning) for some of the vocabulary you have already put on your mind map. Use this online thesaurus or one you may have at home to help you https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-thesaurus

- Think about the characteristics of your setting or the setting you have seen in the photos. Choose the most precise vocabulary to describe the setting.

- Create sentences using today’s session that you can use tomorrow when you write you setting description.
