Great set of three differentiated Functional Maths task sheets for E1, E2 and E3. Originally written for ESOL Numeracy groups but suitable for all Entry Maths learners. The picture shows part of the E3 version.

All tasks are based on office equipment (pencils, hole punches, staplers, etc.). The focus is on number skills (counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, rounding, simple fractions) but there is also a sprinkling of data handling and measure/money skills.

Fully mapped to Functional Maths criteria.

This carousel of Jubilee tasks was hurriedly put together for a group of 10 E1-E3 Functional Maths and English 16-19 year old learners who had just (very successfully!) finished all their Edexcel Functional Skills assessments.

After a year of hard work from my students, the emphasis was on celebration and fun. However, learning objectives included: measuring, counting, writing an email, spelling, 2D shapes, estimating, rounding and working with money. Rough lesson outline also included.
