Brother and sister Rhys and Lucy make decorative pancakes for Shrove Tuesday in the shape of Minions, the cute little creatures from the Despicable Me films. A great opportunity to revise colours and clothes vocabulary as they discuss how to create the Minion.

Like all the resources in the Banque de ressources (BRNE), you can download the video or audio to use offline, as well as the script and teacher's guide. There are online activities to help your pupils' comprehension. And the videos are available with non subtitles, English subtitles, or keyword subtitles to use with different levels.
