Taken from the idea of the brilliant Phil Beadle, I have created a fun PowerPoint with images from the film 'Kung Fu Panda&' . This is a fun, interactive way for them to learn the basics of punctuation which can then be used to add punctuation to a worksheet (with punctuation missing) and as an aid in their own written work.
I have created '3 levels' of Kung Fu Punctuation based on Ros Wilson's model. Each new level re-caps what was done previously. Students practice the moves, do the correct move to match the sentence displayed, and then finish the session with a tournament.
PowerPoint on choosing correct connectives with animated pictures to illustrate sentences. Interactive to allow children to choose a connective and read the resulting sentence to see if it makes sense. Enjoy!

Children loved making pizzas at our Italian pizza class. Resources have been exported from an Activ-primary flip-chart. (Which also includes Italian Pizzeria style music.) Fun to play when the children are making their pizzas or working. If you would like original please message me.

A powerpoint created for use with my year 5 literacy set. It outlines the three types of sentences and explains how to use a subordinate clause in the middle of a main clause. It also include examples at the end for the children to identify the clauses.
A set of sentences for children to add in subordinate clauses. I printed them to A3 and got the children to cut them up and add in a subordinate clause on a coloured piece of paper.
