Many of the pages are animated to run automatically.

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.
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.
