Thank you so much to the editor who is behind this success of this website. It is more than outstanding. I give it an A********* so many stars are not enough. Thanks again.

Outstanding website!

I was looking to design my own PowerPoints for some revision sessions but found it time consuming. I then started to browse the net when I came across this wonderful site. Topics are clearly graded and I could pick and choose the PowerPoint that I wanted to use with my students. Thanks!! It is fantastic resource!

This is one of the most useful free websites I have come across. The topics are clearly organised and levelled/graded. Most of the resources provided are really good and my classes really enjoy the starters of the day. I really appreciate all the hard work that has been put into the resources.

This is an excellent site with so many useful, fun resources to use.  Almost feel guilty for using resources that someone has spent so much time creating so a big thank you, much appreciated by myself and my students.

This web site is a great resource. It makes my job a lot easier. Well done!

I really like the structure of your site and am planning to link in your resources to our new schemes of work. I really appreciate the hard work you have put into this.

This website is truly brilliant!  I love the way the topics are levelled and there are so many good resources! Thanks for sharing!

Your site is great. It really helps people like me who dont have the compuer skills to produce Powerpoints. I have found so many useful things for the classroom. I cant think how I managed without it.

This is always my first place to look for PowerPoints and other resources. It makes planning so much easier. Thank you.
