  • Great - this will really help to direct the kids. May I suggest you make a single A4 sheet with lots of sequential/transitional words on it (under headings like location/time etc) - this would make a great accompaniment to the PowerPoint.

  • Hi,
    I have tried opening both the sassoon version and comic sans and neither work. The sassoon version opens to boxes where the text should be as previously mentioned in the comments and the comic sans version loads the slide show view straight away and crashes powerpoint. Help would be appreciated.

    • Good morning gromitf,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with this resource. I have managed to download and open this powerpoint successfully.
      To make sure that our lovely PowerPoints work properly for you, please make sure that you have selected 'Enable Editing' if this is displayed as an option.
      Any animations or other special features will work best when the PowerPoint is viewed as a Slideshow. To do this, simply click on the Slideshow tab and select 'View from beginning'.
      I hope this helps but if you need further guidance please get back in touch!

    • Hi lookingforresources,
      Thanks for getting in touch! I've just taken a look at this resource and it displays properly for me here. The 'Main' version is in Sassoon font, so it may be a compatibility issue. Please could you try downloading the 'Comic Sans' version and this should solve the issue. Please let me know if I can help with anything else - have a lovely day! :)
