My New School
Essential vocabulary for going to school in the UK

1 review

My New School gives new pupils the essential vocabulary they will need to cope with their early weeks in a UK school. Through pictures they learn the words they will need in the classroom, around the school and in understanding different aspects of the curriculum.

Picture dictionary: Choose a topic and see the common words used in that topic. Click on a word to hear it spoken.

Puzzle: Choose a topic. Match the words with the pictures. The puzzle uses nine of the words at random from the picture dictionary. They are different each time.

Memory: The matching pairs game (Pelmanism). Choose a topic. The words are different each time.

More activities: If you use our "Games Box" software you can use the words from My New School with it, so you have several more activities you can use to practise the new vocabulary.


Customisation: It is possible to
  • select which of the words you want to appear in the puzzle and Memory game
  • omit items from the picture dictionary, re-label them, add new items
  • replace the images with those relevant to own school
  • omit some of the topics or change the names of the topics
  • add one completely new topic
