  • The key learning points are expressed with precision, and are often consolidated through homework, quizzes and crosswords etc. 
  • The lessons provide a myriad of opportunities for the development of critical thinking and debating skills, whilst introducing the children to complex and sometimes controversial issues, and new vocabulary.

Technical

  • Many of the learning activities on this site are designed for use on the interactive whiteboard. 
  • PPT presentations must be saved to enable editing, however links will only work when the computer is connected to the internet.
  • Please note that a green dot will appear in the bottom right hand corner of every slide to indicate when any animation has run its course.
  • Some presentations include text boxes into which children's suggestions may be typed directly (when using a whiteboard) for modelling purposes. These slides may also serve as planning sheets or aids for the children when downloaded and printed.
