Literacy: Functional Skills English, General literacy / English

Free tags: Equality and Diversity

Context: Art Film Media Music TV

Level: E3, L1, L2

Resource type: Flash cards, Interactive presentation, Listening and/or speaking activity

I have had feedback from people using the Big Brother PDF discussion worksheet (see link below – under see also) but without any pictures! The fun part of the session (and for it to really work) is to show the students the people they have chosen: this generates plenty of discussion about prejudice and stereotyping. So, here are the 20 pictures to match to each description given in the earlier resource.

Decimal multiplication connect 4

Submitted by Hannah Yates on Fri, 2017-06-02 17:39

Numeracy: Functional Maths - number, N2/L1.5, N2/L2.6

Resource type: Game, Teaching idea

Level: L1, L2

A game for 2 players to help with multiplying decimals with or without a calculator.
Learners take turns to choose 2 numbers to multiply, then cover up the answer on the grid. This continues until a player has 4 counters/initials in a row(diagonally, horizontally or vertically).
Prompts can be used for learners to pick a target answer and to try to work out which 2 decimals are going to give that answer.
Editor’s note
Laminate for re-use. A great game.
