PowerPoint quiz templates

PowerPoint quiz templates

Made a long time ago, but I think they still look funky - especially the slide templates in the news quiz. Evidently the questions are now somewhat out of date!

Professional PowerPoint Presentations (or could be applied to Google Slides)

Professional PowerPoint Presentations (or could be applied to Google Slides)

I made this some time ago, but it still has valid points about creating presentations. If your students (or staff) are still treating PowerPoint slides like a place to write essays, then this might help ;-) Covers the following: = Great colours schemes & professional fonts = Make your point…concisely = Use high impact images = Use subtle transitions & animations = Add navigation…if necessary

Bravery St George's Day Drama 23rd April Assembly: George / Georgie And The Dragon drama skit

Bravery St George's Day Drama 23rd April Assembly: George / Georgie And The Dragon drama skit

This is a funny script taking around 10 minutes to perform. It is essentially about a knight plucking up the bravery to ask out the prince/princessss. There’s a couple of slightly different versions to choose from and play about with. It is designed to be performed by 4 main characters and some one line parts for others. Other roles include looking after props and sound/music and performing a rap. Other students may wish to devise a dance set to a song about bravery, thus using as many people as your group allows. Costumes can be sourced from places such as ebay or scrounged from friends/family! Ask around, you’ll be surprised what people have. All sound effects provided in this resource are, to the best of my knowledge, royalty free. You are welcome to use the ‘rap’ loop, which I made. I advise also sourcing: Tudor music, Hall of Fame (by The Script) and/or “Brave” by Sara Bareillies. Evidently not included because of copyright.

How to mark and get high marks for OCR A-Level H446 coursework - NEA Mark Scheme Decomposed!

How to mark and get high marks for OCR A-Level H446 coursework - NEA Mark Scheme Decomposed!

I've taken the H446 mark scheme to pieces, and then put it back together in a much more manageable way, taking account of extensive experience of marking projects. With this document, you will be able to: - Quickly and accurately mark and assess A-Level projects - Guide your students to getting maximum marks, and focus on what it is that gets marks. What more could you want?! This document includes a clear mark scheme and a guide about what to include for each part of the project. NB: This is for GUIDANCE ONLY and high marks are not guaranteed!

Jingle Bells backing track 80bpm, 90bpm, 100bpm and PowerPoint notes and words

Jingle Bells backing track 80bpm, 90bpm, 100bpm and PowerPoint notes and words

I first did this in 1997 (when I used to have a life!!), but it's still good fun to do today! Target age - Year 6 or 7, but I've also done this with older students too. Give students chime bars, jingle bells and a triangle to play along with the notes in the presentation...the test can sing along! Good fun. The backing track is just that - piano chords and bass. The tune is played and/or sang by students. I've also included a bonus track with ideas for how chime bars could be used with other traditional Christmas songs... Just one verse and chorus, but you can use 3 different playback speeds as they get better and better. The backing track is piano and bass only.
