Whilst lesson plan is interesting, I don't agree that showing a clip from "Saving Private Ryan" is relevant to trench warfare in WWI - D-Day landings and American soldiers! There are excellent extracts from archive footage on YouTube and the film, "Beneath Hill 60" is a powerful & easily accessible WW1 dvd.

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. <br />
It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. <br />
It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. <br />
Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation.<br />
Several verse examples are provided for clarity. <br />
Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio.<br />
'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. <br />
I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching.<br />
Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. <br />
Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
