  • Brilliant for day after a trip to the Houses of Parliament.  We're all shattered but the children can make their own choices about how they want to record the visit and can have their own success criteria based on these.  Thank you Twinkl!

  • Hi there - I plan to use this for helping children to read over and improve their writing. However, I can't seem to find the 'Story Openers' checklist which is the one I'd want - instead this opens a duplicate of the reports one.
