Outstanding English starter and plenary activities

86 PowerPoint slides consisting of starters and plenaries. Can be printed as worksheets, edited and adapted. I have created these over the last 4 years whilst teaching English. I teach English to KS3 SEMH students, but these can be adapted for KS2 and KS4. I have had several lessons observations using such slides, graded as outstanding, including an English observation from OFSTED. Slides can be printed out as worksheets for students, added to your existing PowerPoints, can be edited and adapted depending on topic.

Activities include:
Paired discussion templates
Dictionary and thesarus tasks
Two truths and a lie
Quiz templates
Here is the answer, what is the question
A to Z
Word bank template
Pictures links
What if?
Teach an alien
Match the keywords
How many words can you make out of…?
Brain dump
memory master

…and many more.
