    Useful, I'm going to try to alter the timings so it works. Homophones are actually a type of homonym so I think that is fine! I agree that copulation is not ok for KS2 though. Without that, a time saving resource.

    The presentation did not work so I could not test it. The basic outline of each slide was useful.

    I echo concerns about the inappropriate word choice and add one about the fact that it doesn't work.

    I have just adapted this for my Year 5 class. It was a great basis for a presentation and it saved me from staring from scratch. However I did need to make the changes mentioned above (eg got rid of copulation, changed homonyms to homophones, and corrected lightning!).
