I hate to say this: I used the lesson plan and resources today, Sept. 30th 2014. I felt the lesson went really well, the children were v enthusiastic, and worked with real concentration. Unfortunately, the lesson was being observed by the Head and Deputy. The preliminary feedback (more tomorrow) is that the lesson isnt "age appropriate" for Years 5 and 6. Will keep updated on further feedback.........

Great resource. Just used it for the supply teacher. In response to Sarah Smith, I have ActivStudio and that opens SmartFile notebooks and converts them.
