Want an interactive way to teach synonyms? Try TES partner NGfLCymru's resource pack. Or pupils can create "super, splendid, scintillating sentences" with dillsage's two-player game that uses VCOP (vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation) to improve written work.


If you take a walk through your town or village and focus on street names, buildings and the design of the area you live in, you can unearth fascinating details about how everyday life has developed. Try Buxtocl's Middle Ages resource to explore medieval town life.


Kaz526's activities about time include a DIY bingo set with analogue, scripted and digital examples that help pupils' understanding of different formats. A card-sorting activity encourages problem-solving, ordering events and identifying different ways of writing time.
