This is a set of worksheets in a MS Excel workbook that deals with fractions.

- Sheet one: a set of pictures (pie charts) that shows fractions from halves to tenths

- Sheet two: equivalent fractions with two pie charts, learners can input fractions and see if they are equivalent by looking at the shape of the pie charts

- Sheet three: starting to look at fractions being equivalent to decimals with two pie charts one for fractions and one for decimals

Designed for Entry 3 – Level 2 Functional Skills English.

Students loved this lesson. Can be designed around other areas but covers:

Writing persuasively.

Fact and opinion.

Research write a factual article

Create a poster using appropriate language.

A word processing activity which involves typing and formatting and also contains useful information.

The idea is that the learners digest the text that they are working with and learn from it. I would put it at about level E2/3.

This functional resource gets the learner to answers some questions about a depicted rail ticket and then look up costs for two journeys and carry out further calculations: Woking to London (E2), London to Glasgow (E3 extension questions).

Addition is used to find the cost of two tickets and subtraction to find the difference between two tickets and the cost of two tickets. Multiplication is used to find the cost of an hourly car park ticket.

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.

Students are to plan and advertise a Christmas fete.

The resource covers writing lists and sentences, proof reading and using basic adjectives.

Students could use the Internet to find some ideas for Christmas stalls.

I have created a paper based initial assessment for ICT to identify if students should be working towards Level 1 or Level 2.

Rugby themed task on reading (use of quotations and dialogue, facts versus opinions), researching and writing a short article. Topic links to ICT, suitable for use during e.g. Rugby World Cup, Six Nations Tournament or with any group keen on sport![img_assist|nid=5708|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=100|height=71]

A worksheet where learners research and record findings using Google maps. The idea is to get them familiar with reference points for distances. Gives learners an idea how far places are from them in real terms, and teaches them to estimate with measurements.

Also provides good practice with the Google maps app on phones, Mac or PC.

Simulation of completing an online CV. Very easy to use, fill in the boxes and print after completion.
