    • Hi Sophietedbed,
      Thanks for your comment and I’m sorry that there are some difficulties in accessing this resource.
      Sometimes, if a file name is quite long or a file quite large, it can be helpful to first download the resource to your desktop. To do this, please right click on the pink Download button and select 'Save link as', then select desktop as the destination. After this you should be able to extract and open these files in the usual way or save them to a different location as needed!
      I hope this helps but if you need further guidance or have any other questions please get back in touch and I'll be happy to help you! :)

    • Hi debsadler1,
      Thanks for letting us know about this issue. I have checked this resource again and it seems to be working, but I can see that a few of our customers have reported having issues with it before. I will send it over to our lovely design team, who can take a thorough look. They will be in touch with you soon. Have a lovely day :)

  • Such a fantastic resource! Once again Twinkl you have saved me hours! One problem I have had though is being able to get the video links in the presentation to work. Is there any chance that these could be fixed please?
