    Re: Game

    Hi Abi,

    You need to make sure that you've listened to all four characters, the expert and read all the clues. An 'Answer' button will then appear.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

    WWII resource

    Looks like a fun way to relate info. to children re. WWII. I will probably use it on SmartBoard with whole class as I have P2's, but a good resource for older children to do at computer in groups.
