Adverts M&S / descriptive language / food advertising / menu - Now Mac / iPad version included

Adverts M&S / descriptive language / food advertising / menu - Now Mac / iPad version included

A set of materials I made based on the Marks and Spencer's Food Adverts. The lesson objective was to use interesting adjectives in their writing. We watched M&S food adverts, as a class explored describing different foods and then wrote our own. Included lesson plan, word bank, videos and presentation. I have now included a Keynote version which will work on iPad / Mac. (Children then wrote their own advert using descriptive language and we filmed the advert.)

How to Create a Great Looking PowerPoint

How to Create a Great Looking PowerPoint

(Greg Reid has written two Computing text books for the Scottish education system. His resources are used in thousands of schools.) Previously selected by TES to appear on their Twitter feed, this resource was created to help younger students understand the basics of good PowerPoint design. It covers the correct use of colour themes, text content and animation, often indicating that less is more. The resource may also be used as a poster when printed in A3. This resource was previously rated 5 out of 5 and included comments such as: Brilliant well done. Often the children are tempted to add every possible text, colour, image and animation possible. This guide helps to show them how to keep their presentation looking snazzy without looking a mess! Thank you! This is an excellent resource has been selected to feature on the @TESPrimary twitter feed over the next week. Thank you so much for sharing, you are helping to inspire teachers and students all over the world!
