    The pupils were really engaged in the lesson with the movements and learned a lot about form. They were having so much fun they did not realise how much they were learning! The links with the books is fabulous. (American spelling)I replaced the words with our own that were...

    different. A must buy! For all age groups as you can ammend it as you wish to fit the age group.
