Six Functional Maths tasks based on a theme of cooking pancakes in a college canteen. Plenty of space is provided for showing working out and many questions have no single correct answer (as, in a true functional fashion, these will depend on the students’ ideas and research).

Covers number, ratio, tallies, fractions, money and measures. All three process skills are amply covered. Particularly suitable for Shrove Tuesday but can be used all year round.

A recently designed resource that I wanted to share with my fellow skillsworkshop users. I wanted something to use with my learners as a spelling lesson. I have tried to involve various activities to help motivate and keep interest whilst learning spellings.

Resource includes a cloze exercise, comprehension questions, homophones and plurals, and a final crossword to check skills.
