Like the content - just don't like the KS2 symbols on it and the flagrant advertising. If you buy it why should there be adverts on the slides. It's not free so don't stick ads on it.
The resource is excellent and very useful to plan varied and differentiated lessons. However, I was unable to download lessons 7, 8 & 9- could you help me with this please? I have tried on a number of occasions.
Fantastic resource. Great variety and fun lessons. I would have liked it to match up with the Scottish curriculum. This would make me buy more packs in the future.
Wow. Such an amazing deal. There's so much in here. Will keep my students busy for weeks. Thanks so much. It's also well presented.
