[img_assist|nid=4367|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=70|height=100]Learners will read dates by looking at a calendar and marking on when the Olympics start and finish (including the Paralympics), read times that the football events start and finish and put these on a clockface, and read prices of tickets of a match that they choose. There are also questions on shapes, number, money and doubling.
ICT is used through looking up football venues, printing a photo and using Google maps to find out how far away the venue is. Reading (scanning) skills are used throughout for extracting information from lists and tables. For Entry 1 – Entry 2 learners.
