This is a powerpoint presentation about the features of biography and autobiography. I am a student teacher and have created this as a starting point in my very first literacy lesson for year 6, to distinguish between the two types of texts. I feel this is a good introductive presentation, or revision aid. We will later be focussing on biographies of Malorie Blackman, hence her photograph featuring on the opening page. Please feel free to add any comments about this resource as it is my first attempt and any feedback is greatly appreicated.
This is a powerpoint of images designed as a stimulus for discussion within the classroom. It questions gender stereotypes and roles in the workplace/society. Some questions included to guide teachers/group discussion. This has been designed for an UKS2 class but could also be used with older children as it contains some thought provoking slides.
Highlighted useful vocabulary and worksheet includes a list of vocabulary children can use to write their own diary entry.
This worksheet is designed for use with upper ks2. I have an extension group but it is adaptable. Images of the latest craze toys to capture their interest. Children cut and stick images into their books and calculate/record the reduced price of each toy, showing their method. Children could also use this as a calculator exercise. Please leave constructive feedback as I am NQT, many thanks!

A PPT presentation of 27 different Maths questions which can be edited to suit your needs. Aimed at UKS2.
A list of persuasive phrases to cut up and hide around the classroom. The idea is that chn walk around in pairs to find as many as they can, then fill them in on their grid and write a sentence to demonstrate the use of each opener.
