Great Detail

This has been such a great program to follow. It's quite 'heavy' content for some students but they have enjoyed the lessons because of the different approaches and great slides. I did have to alter Queen to King on a few slides, but this was also a really good talking point about the new monarch.

Being a new teacher to year 5 I have found this resource helped me to teach with ease. Thank you Amy!
