E1.9 Identify & recognise common 2-D and 3-D shapes including circle, cube, rectangle (incl. square) and triangle

Subject content [reformed] functional skills: Mathematics (DfE, Feb 2018): 

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/functional-skills-subject-content-mathematics

A revision task for Entry 1 and Entry 2 Functional Maths, based on the City and Guilds assessments. Includes comparing weight and prices, calculations with money, and 3D shapes. 

There is a 'running' version and a worksheet.  The running version is designed to be cut into strips. Students work in pairs or small groups on question 1 and one person 'runs' to the teacher when they have written the answer on their strip. If the answer is correct, the teacher gives the next question to take back to their partner.  This can get competitive!

Pat and Mitch decide to build a mini wildlife pond from an old sink. This involves digging, gathering and arranging suitable items, a trip to the aquatic centre to buy water plants, and then sitting back and observing the fruit of their labours :)
