Worked well for us. It's a real pleasure to be a part of the community of this wonderful site. I truly recommend other teachers to use it. It includes so much information that I was almost blown away with it, which is quite something if you know me as the teacher I am. Thanks so much to the absolutely spiffing creator of this super site. I truly hope that there will be more to come of this brilliant knowledge. Thanks again! tata

This worked well with my yr 8. I used it to tell the class the story of John Snow and then sent them off to do some more research and produce a poster. They really enjoyed it.
