  • Great power point but on slide 10 the text boxes are all piled one on top of the other.

    • Hi Annbelardo,
      Sorry to hear you're having a few issues. I've checked it over and it seems to be working properly.
      Any animations, links or other special features will work best when the PowerPoint is viewed as a Slideshow. To do this, simply click on the Slideshow tab and select 'View from beginning'.
      I hope this helps and I will also send a copy of this resource through to you. If you need further guidance please get back in touch and we'll find a solution! :)

  • Good but im on an iPad and lots of the slides are out! Confusing when you're looking at scales and need to be accurate. Will have to pick and choose which I use.

    • Hi emabruton,

  • Hi there,
    Thanks for the comment and I am sorry that you are having problems with this resource.
    I have taken a look and it seems to work OK here - is there another computer that you could try it on? Please let us know how that goes! Have a lovely day!

  • I'm planning to use this on Monday with a year 2 class. It looks good but I've ad to spend 20 minutes editing it as the text often didn't align with the background properly. Not sure if it is a design error or the way that it has loaded with Keynote on the Mac I'm using.

  • I think the pictures on this ppt are really confusing because they are 3d so it looks like there are two lines to read. Also 0 is not at the bottom of the jug - most scales don't start at 0.

    • Hi htuffnell,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      The text on slide 10 appears on different clicks of the slideshow, which is why it appears overlapped on the previews down the side. If you click onto slideshow mode you'll be able to view the page properly.

      I hope that helps. if you have any further problems please get back in touch. I hope you have a lovely day! : )
