    • Good morning beccamxx,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) I have tried opening this PowerPoint and it is opening successfully for me.
      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 nyashakui,
      Thanks for commenting and I'm sorry you're having trouble downloading this resource.
      The what is light slide, is on the same Powerpoint shown on the preview screen entitled 'Light and Dark'. Could you please take a look at the files to see if the powerpoint is there because I've taken a look at and it appears to download properly for me here. Our helpful FAQ page should provide a solution, but if you're still having trouble, let me know and I'll have another look at this right away for you!
      Have a lovely evening! :)

  • Hi, this is a fantastic lesson that I can't wait to use with my year 3 class. However there is a small issue, on the differentiated light and dark activity sheet (MA and HA) it asks children to complete the paragraph using the key words below yet there are not any there.

    Is there anyway this can be resolved please?

    Thank you.

This lesson pack enables you to teach the children about light and dark. They will identify light sources, and discuss reflectors of light, such as the Moon. The children will take part in a fun activity to demonstrate that we need light to see, and that dark is the absence of light.
