Hi Cath,

The link for the student worksheet is broken.



Thanks for your comment. We have had a technical issue with the site this week, which is being worked on. However, I can open the link for the student worksheet here without any problems - could you try again? (perhaps try a different browser).
If you still have problems, please let us know.
