This short powerpoint outlines the different types of headlines (puns, word/letter play, alliteration and rhyming) along with examples on each page.
Many of the pages are animated to run automatically.
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!).
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.

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.

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
