This multimodal text is a collection of recounts of four famous historical events – the Ancient Olympic Games, Great Fire of London, Gunpowder Plot and Great Exhibition – told from the point of view of famous people involved in them.

It provides an alternative to paper-based text for children to access and research information supporting cross-curricular work. Each event introduces relevant vocabulary likely to be new to the children. For each event, key information is accessed in the same way: clicking on the narrator reveals a speech bubble and activating hot spots provides additional text boxes and some sound effects. The content will also support older children in themed work and research.
