Saved my bacon!

Thank you so much for publishing this. I am a supply teacher, working in a new school for a week and the topic was China: Old and New! Without your pack I would have been struggling to find resources. The children loved the activities, especially the power point and the colourful pictures. The school were impressed too! Thank you for saving my bacon!

Very nice!

A good selection of activities, and a wonderful way to learn about Ancient China. I was pleased to see the oracle bones explained, and the pictures used throughout are sure to impress.
