  • Am I missing something?  When I download this it looks nothing like the picture here?

    • Hi MissKAH,
      Thank you for your comment. I have had a look and can see that most of the activity sheets on the preview picture match the activity sheets in the pack but I did notice that the 'Stone Age Comprehension' activity is in a different layout. I have asked our design team to look at this for you and see if they can make the 'Stone Age Comprehension' activity in the same layout as the others.

    • Hi there MissKAH,
      Thank you for spotting this mistake! Our lovely teacher and design teams have solved the issue and the new version is now available to download. I hope you like it!

  • It's useful but the Stone Age document isn't differentiated or editable to make it suitable for a range of abilities, which is a bit disappointing.

  • Great resource - only I wish the Stone Age section was differentiated like the Bronze and Iron Age sections are. thank you Twinkl - especially like all the images, great for my visual learners.

      I'm sorry that answers haven't been included yet - I've asked our lovely English team to include an answer sheet for this resource. They'll get on it right away!
