Christmas cat countdown and comprehension puzzle

This animated Power Point features Scat Cat who is on a mission to solve some number puzzles. He is presented with a problem on each page and a choice of three trees displaying a range of numbers on their baubles. Only one of the trees is displaying the correct baubles. The animations will give the audience clues as to which tree to select if they observe closely. All answers are given at the end and the audience is asked to help Scat Cat countdown to Christmas Day by revising how many weeks in a year, days in a week etc. I include a word document which tells the story of Scat Cat's misadventure on Christmas Morning and has comprehension questions attached and a challenge to find some verbs in the text.

Shackleton and the Endurance - Keynote

Keynote is presentation software similar to Powerpoint that is produced by Apple Computer and can be used on a Mac or iPad. Be aware that this is the latest version (2014). Please download the preview if you are unsure if it will work on your computer.

The story is told with the aid of a timeline of the expedition in the medium of a Keynote - similar to a Powerpoint presentation but a lot more versatile!

The Three Musketeers Wordsearch Novel English Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The Three Musketeers Wordsearch Novel English Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Three Musketeers'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
