A powerpoint containing 14 literacy and 14 numeracy questions, aimed at encouraging children to think creatively and logically. Literacy Q example: ‘how would you describe an elephant to someone who has never seen one before?’. All questions have colourful backgrounds to stimulate the children’s More…thoughts. I made this for a Year 5 class, but it could be equally well applied to all KS2. I’m an overworked GTP student so please leave any feedback you can, it will help me with my evidence!

I found this resource useful when putting together a Holiday Activities booklet for my students. Thank you for the great ideas.

A a teacher in Essex, I particularly appreciate the English based pages! The Essex 11+ has recently added 2 x 10 minute writing tasks - and these slides are perfect support for this. Thank you!

What resources did you use to construct the PowerPoint? I would like to create additional slides.
