    Intending to use as a mid year assessment as a variation from other types of assessments (paper, oral etc\) particularly useful as my very ICT savvy class will love recording on the computer, then I can print for my records!

    weighing activity. Great. Am doing an PSR&N observed lesson in the morning, and the weiging activity is perfect for an independant task. we can do the 'report' bit together - the children love the voice as they click on apicture.
