Please note that for our KS1 units, we provide a text extract that differs from the actual text. It is against copyright to take and reproduce the text/pictures directly from a published book, so we always try to use our texts for the units based on the original. We always recommend that teachers have at least one copy of the text and read the original text with their pupils, then switch to the amended version that is based on the original. For this unit, the text in included in the product downloads as a PowerPoint. Please donate a small donation on the Communication4all website when downloading this text, in respect to Bev and her surviving husband and children, to help with the hosting and upkeep of the website.
