This website is dedicated to the memory of my daughter Kerry Emma who died in November 1983 aged 5 years. You are welcome to use any of the free resources I produced during the 20 years I spent teaching in Primary Schools and still make for fun. You are also welcome to add a link to my site but please do not add my teaching resources to your website or School Learning Platform. To anyone who adds a link to my website I send my thanks. Marilyn 2012
How did it all begin?
The website began almost by accident and may not have begun at all if I hadn’t needed
an excuse to lock myself away in the study to hide from the builders who were adding
an extension to our house in the winter of 2005-
All things come to an end and (as I suspected it would one day) the ancient Publisher website finally imploded when I became the owner of a brand new Windows 7 computer in September 2011. From that point on both myself and my husband worked ten and twelve hour days every day to get this new, replacement website up and running while the old site hovered for four months in cyber space, still working, still generating orders but cut adrift from yours truly!
I hope you all like the new, much improved, KS1Resources website and that it will continue in its present reincarnation for many years to come or until I run out of ideas and inspiration!

School Learning Platforms and other Websites
During 2011 it kept coming to my attention that some schools had been adding my PowerPoints to the CLASS Areas of their Learning Platforms and/or websites so that parents could access and view the resources with their children at home.
Class areas are set to ‘public’ rather than ‘secure’ or ‘private’ -
As a direct result my PowerPoints have been found by carrying out a simple Google search. In other words, my work is accessible to the general public through these school sites.
Please, DO NOT ADD ANY OF MY WORK TO YOUR LEARNING PLATFORMS or WEBSITES.
Or FILESHARE or FACEBOOK pages I have not given my permission for you to do this.
Thank you to Uniservity for locating the schools for me and sorting out the problem.
Thank you also to the schools and individuals involved for taking the PowerPoints off your sites.
Which Font Do I Need?
A Reminder about Sassoon Primary Infant Font: If you don't have this font installed on your computer the text on your slides will default to another font and use larger characters which may disappear behind pictures or off the slide. If you want to order and pay by cheque please make sure you tell me which font you need otherwise I will copy your resources in Comic Sans.. See the order form. If in doubt please email me and ask for a sample PowerPoint in Sassoon Primary Infant.
All sample slides on this site use Sassoon Primary Infant Font. If you have problems with how this font displays on your screen you’ll be safer ordering PowerPoints in Comic Sans font. PDF files are mainly in Sassoon but can be read and printed in the usual way. I do not offer a laminating service.
When will I get my order?
I am constantly checking my computer for orders and as soon as I process (copy or upload) your order I will email you to tell you that it’s ready and when you should get it or, what the download link is.
If you are ordering for the first time I know it can be a bit of a leap into the unknown but I WILL get back to you as soon as I can. If you’ve paid through PayPal, a page will open in a new window that will inform you if I’m having a break from my computer and will tell you what to do if you can’t wait for your order.
Most PowerPoints were made either on a Windows XP or Windows 7 computer using PowerPoint 2000 although many of the new resources are now being made in PowerPoint 2003. I’m hoping that by sticking with these earlier versions of PowerPoint, everyone will be able to access them on their computers. Later versions of PowerPoint should be able to open earlier versions. So far, no one reported otherwise!
If your PayPal address no longer works I’m afraid you’ll not get an email from me as anything I send will bounce back to me as a failed message. I hope that won’t be the case though.
Can I get my order sooner or even today? I don’t want a CD but I’m not sure I’d be able to sort out a download if I asked for one……
This is not an instant download site so resources are usually put on CDs and then posted however, downloads are possible.
To find out how to pay (including paying by cheque) click here
If you only want one folder of resources or resources that together are around 500 MB I can send you a download link. For information about this click on the link below
Admin costs for downloads will be shown as postage charges at checkout and added automatically. (Not refunded)
ORDERING FROM ABROAD
Any orders from abroad will be sent by download link only.
IF you are outside UK post code areas (which means you are ordering from abroad) I will send you a download link and this is INSTEAD of a CD.
Please Click and Read
I can send you a download link (which will get to you before a posted CD!) but you need to tell me you want to choose this option. Scroll a bit further down for full details and please read carefully.
Also see above this section for information about what to do if I’m having a break from my computer.
Please email me to ask for a download link or add ‘instructions’ to your PayPal order before paying at checkout.
After you’ve paid with PayPal a new window will open. This will have information about downloads and how to contact me. Also…..
If I’m away from my computer for any length of time you will be informed of this and told what to do if you can’t wait for your order.
