This powerpoint explains the features that should be included in an opening/setting, as well as how the language used can change the type of setting that it is. It builds on and develops the use of similes, metaphors and personification. There is an accompanying page with the settings for snowy forests, a settings sheet with 9 pictures, and evaluation sheets for HA, MA and LA.
A booklet which challenges children to design and cost up their own zoo, taking in to account the building costs, running costs, takings and advertising.
My class worked in pairs and loved this task. Works well as an end of term/year topic.
Differentiated sheets for HA, MA, LA which have a description of a simile, metaphor and personification. LA have to fill in the blanks, MA have to fill in the blanks and then create their own sentence, HA have to create their own sentences.

Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it.
It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks.
It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want.
Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.
