Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3261)
"I liked the sound effects! This would be good for the more severe learners and those with visual problems. I also liked the fact that animation was used too. Children with SEN really enjoy presentations with animation." — D Wilson, MLD Teacher and Dyslexia Specialist, Independent Reviewer
"I enjoyed the quality of the powerpoints presentations, the style of the presentations and the fun, engaging graphics that were used. I also particularly liked the notes and suggestions for activities that were included... Engages and stimulates pupils/learners who can interact with the presentations. And provides teachers with the resources and ideas to enhance the quality of teaching and learning of this topic. Clear differentiated tasks and resources that would enhance the learning of a range of learners with a range of different special educational needs... Would recommend others to consider it." — A Chapman, Assistant Principal and RE Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"Excellent." — S Holt, Lecturer and MLD/SLD Teacher, Independent Reviewer
