Activity 1

SUSI 4.4 Complex Intentions

Activity 1:Tricks

Description of Target: The child will be able to understand the concept of tricks and the mismatch between language and thought

Purpose: To develop the child’s understanding of and ability to manage personal and complex situations



  • Today we are going to think about how people sometimes play tricks on each other

  • Explain a trick as like a lie but it’s for fun

  • The point of a trick is to see if they can get you to believe something that isn’t true

  • Demonstrate using 2 child figures an interaction that involves one playing a trick on the other from the list attached

  • Make explicit reference to the vocabulary i.e. that’s a trick and act out falling for it

  • Repeat the trick but second time, don’t fall for it, and say, ‘you’re only saying that because you want me to think my shoe’s open. It’s only a trick. I’m not going to fall for it’

  • Emphasise key vocabulary and repeat with another trick asking the child to take one of the roles and act out both falling for the trick and not falling for it.

  • As you proceed through add the language that children might use to tease the child if they do fall for it

  • Explain – sometimes children say e.g. ‘made you look made you stare’ etc and so if you hear this then that is a trick

Success Criteria The child will understand the concept of tricks as funny
