This is a simplified, minimal literacy version of a Christmas numeracy resource (see below) written as an end of term assessment for a mixed ability group ranging from low E2 – E3 – low L1. Ideal for students with low literacy or for a faster assessment where you are just testing straightforward maths – not problem solving skills (most Xmas references have been removed making it suitable for year-round use). With a marking box sheet for E2, E3, L1 to allow for differentiated assessment and separate answer sheet.
