This notebook shows children what a simile is and helps them to write their own. To begin with children use their senses to think of words to describe various fruits. They then use these words to create their own similes.
These materials will help you write your personal statement when applying for a PGCE in primary education.
In addition, the Question and answers booklet will help you through your interviews if you get to that stage!
An exhaustive booklet including EVERYTHING pupils need to know for the Research methods module for the AQA (A) AS specification (2010/2011).

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. <br />
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.
This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
