Planning board instructions (in pdf format)
Planning board PowerPoint
Note: Browsers and computers are trying really hard to protect you from naughty people, so to use this PowerPoint planning board you will need to:
- Download the PowerPoint presentation file (Windows users: Right-Click, Mac users Ctrl-Click and choose Save Link As...)
- Open the presentation, and if you receive a security warning about 'Macros and ActiveX', please choose to enable the active content (this is NOT normally the recommended option, but the file has been checked).
- If you do choose not to enable the active content, the planning board won't work and you will need to download a fresh copy.
Note for techies: If you don't like using .pps files, you can change the extension to .ppt (not pptx) but the board will only work when the presentation is run.
