Adverts M&S / descriptive language / food advertising / menu - Now Mac / iPad version included

A set of materials I made based on the Marks and Spencer's Food Adverts. The lesson objective was to use interesting adjectives in their writing. We watched M&S food adverts, as a class explored describing different foods and then wrote our own. Included lesson plan, word bank, videos and presentation. I have now included a Keynote version which will work on iPad / Mac. (Children then wrote their own advert using descriptive language and we filmed the advert.)

This fantastic, fun, challenging, cross-curricula lesson is packed with learning and has elements of: computing, history, writing and speaking and listening, built into a lesson centred around independent learning and research. Children will be using and applying the historical learning they acquire creatively, as they work through the challenges of the lesson. An optional competitive element, combined with the fun of potentially becoming a Time Detective (and earning a Time Detective badge) create added motivation and increased engagement towards the learning.

17 3D Computer Graphics Images PowerPoint Presentation, Creative Thinking Workbook And Lesson Plan

17 3D Computer Graphics Images PowerPoint Presentation, Creative Thinking Workbook And Lesson Plan

Are you teaching your students about digital art or how to create 3D computer graphic images? Are you looking for some inspiring examples to share with your class? This pack contains a 31 Teaching Activity Teacher Guide. These activities are quick and fun to do and will improve both your students' memory and vocabulary skills. Quickly watch the computer presentation for the first time. Discuss the first questions in the workbook. Get the students to quickly express their opinions on the images and draw their favourite image. Look again at the presentation and try to see how many of the words listed in the vocabulary page could be used to describe each image. Then ask them to imagine they need to write a short movie using some of the images from the presentation. How would they link these images into a coherent story? The remainder of the lesson is used to expand their creative and thinking sides and think about how 3D computer graphics may impact them now and into the future. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about 3D computer graphics images. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different types of 3D computer graphics images. The students can then discuss how they think they were made. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

Little Planet- create your own world using photo editing software (Image Manipulation)

Little Planet- create your own world using photo editing software (Image Manipulation)

I don't know about you but in my more megalomanic dreams I've ruled the world. Now I know this isn't possible, mores the pity, but I have figured out a way to create my own world by using Photoshop and GIMP, the image and photo manipulation and editing software. Photoshop is quite pricy but is the worlds leading software in the field, however GIMP is free and does an amazing job too. Within a few minutes you could create an amazing planetoid, similar to the ones seen below or like the ones in Mario Galaxy.
