## Littergram renamed? L1-2 Functional English pack

Submitted by Jane Johnson on Sun, 2016-05-15 16:09

#### Level: L1, L2

This is a literacy resource based around a recent news story. There are a range of tasks relating to an anti-litter app called ‘littergram’ and legal challenges made to the use of its name, with the potential to extend tasks into other aspects of littering and how the litter problem might be resolved. A final extension task asks students to take their own photographs of local examples of litter as supporting evidence for a writing activity.

## Costs of a night out to London

Submitted by Deborah Proudfoot on Mon, 2016-02-01 17:13

#### Level: E2, E3

This is a set of three (maybe more) lessons which looks at the costs of a night out to London. It starts with students having to look at a train ticket and get the asked information from it – cost/type of ticket/time. It uses addition as students need to find out the cost of two tickets. They then use google to search times of trains. The next session looks at the cost of the theatre ticket and finding out the change you would have from a given amount again researching the theatre on the internet.

Set of resources created by myself and colleague, David Bayne , to help students use Word, Excel and Access.
