Three fabulous PPTs – great for St George’s day but could be used year round.
The full length one (22 slides) was written for a 2.5 hour observed session and has in-depth coverage of multiplying decimals; area of rectangles, triangles, circles and compound shapes; substitution; and a general warm-up quiz.
There are alternative shortened versions (some activities are slightly different too) for a 1 hr L1 lesson (area of rectangles) and a 1.5 hr L1-2 Lesson (no triangles).

It includes reading comprehension questions (E3-L1), a dictionary and alphabetical order task (E2-E3), form filling (E2-E3) and letter writing (E3-L2). There’s also plenty of scope for discussion. The form filling and write-to-your MP tasks are also suitable for Functional English. Ideal for mixed ability groups.
