Wendy Hardy-Osborne
A reading comprehension. Wendy is actually Dr Who´s daughter;-)There are clues in the text that any of your students who watch Dr Who will pick up on: Buccaneer/Chula/Pentallion. And you didn´t study those subjects in the 19th century! The unscramble reads,´Her father is not a doctor, her father is the doctor. Which doctor? Dr Who, of course´.

Teaching adverbs in a subtle manner
I went on a course ´Grammar for writing´ which informs us that you should teach grammar, but in a covert sort of way. I made this little ppt, which will be a nice little starter for reinforcing adverbs.

Christmas Activities
There are some great cliparts on here! I have set the activities/questions to fly in. You might want to just show the images first and get the pupils to describe them. Or play ´Splat!´ Two pupils come to the board. Teacher describes an image. The pupil to touch it first is the winner.

Christmas ´Guess who I am?´ or ´Guess what I am?´
The clues first, then the image flies in. This is not an original idea. Also, the last slide isn´t really about Christmas, but I couldn´t resist! ;-)
