As we approach the time of year where we celebrate conspiracy and plots, thought it would be fun to invent some secret messages of my own using powerpoints motion paths.
This blog post provides you with an example ppt to download and a video explanation of how to create your own messages.
They take a bit of time to set up, but are really good fun to use… Continue

I've uploaded a powerpoint version of this game here
. A cathartic experience for all of your pupils, especially if you are brave enough to subsitute the cartoon teacher with your own photo!

As promised, I have done a video
to demonstrate how to do this. The resolution doesn't seem to be very clear but I hope it is enough to give an idea of how to do it. Let me know if you need further help. If you think of any ideas for developing this technique or teaching applications let me know!
The advantages over the IWB spotlight tool are that you can automate the process and adjust parameters of box size, timings,… Continue

You can imitate the spotlight function of an interactive whiteboard using powerpoint. These two examples were done for a secondary school but the idea can be used for any text. It doesn't work with pictures as what you are revealing has to be the same colour as the background. However it is useful for reading practice as you vary the speed at which the highlight shape moves over the text. I will try and upload a video explanation of how to do this at some point but you are exploiting the use of… Continue

We were playing around using the dragndrop macro in powerpoint at the East Hampshire RSG last night. You can download the powerpoint slides we used below - to make them work you will need to set the security settings on your version of powerpoint to medium in order to enable the macro, then close powerpoint and then re-open it. You won't need to do this again. You will then be prompted to enable macros.
Essentially the macro allows you to mimc the effect of an Interactive… Continue

Would you believe that I started uploading this yesterday afternoon- was losing the will! Have split the powerpoint into four parts to make it quicker to upload but.....hope it doesn't take as long to download! Would have given up but it became a matter of principle!!!

Been making some Interactive Whiteboard resources and thought I'd share a few with anybody who may be using the same software. I will eventually transfer most of this to powerpoint too and will add it to the post for those who don't have an IWB / compatible hardware. Thanks to Joe Dale's
brilliant tip about adding the drag'n'drop macro to a powerpoint presentation, you should be able to move the… Continue

This half-term 'places in the town' has come back round on our whole ks2 rolling program. It's a fun topic that lends itself to lots of cross-curricular activity and we've been making the most of the recent good weather to get out and about with a digital camera.
The children chose places in our local area that 'identified' us (linked very well with signs and symbols in RE) and took photos - some in their own time which they then uploaded to our… Continue

Inspired by Joe Dale's 'Death by Powerpoint' articles and 'how to' guides, I have been trying to adapt a powerpoint introduction of clothes vocabulary in French so that it is easier to use for non-specialist primary teachers. I've attached a copy at the end of this post for anyone who would like to download and comment on…

Quel temps fait-il?
One of the nice things about the weather as a topic is that not only can it be made into a cross-curricular project spread over half a term, but it is also ideally suited for low-key everyday reinforcement in the primary school classroom by the class teacher.
I've attached a template I made for a poster in French that can be pinned on the door/a wall and children can then take it in turns to be responsible for posting little cards for today's day… Continue
