Specifically written to focus on the reformed Entry Level 1 ‘Number’ content, these worksheets follow Sam and Dot at their workplaces during the Halloween period. The resource draws on the different question styles used by the major awarding organisations and can be used for diagnostic assessment and revision.

An adapted version of Zoe Hyde’s Christmas E1-2 Functional Maths (see below) using Australian money. There are other minor edits – for example, the football is sent to New Zealand, not to Europe.
Questions cover almost all of the E1 and E2 UK Functional Skills maths criteria. Includes shapes, size, addition and subtraction, money, reading scales and much more. Fully mapped with teaching tips.
A set of posters / cards / checklists designed to prompt discussion, check learning and keep a record of student progression. Designed for Entry Level Functional Maths and English learners in an FE setting but suitable for all levels and subjects.
This resource was inspired by discussion on the NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics) site about “understanding versus doing” and I would like to thank the forum members for their ideas and feedback.

Start of term quiz or diagnostic exercises (or use simply to get learners into the swing of things!) includes a wide range of questions covering number, measures and data handling.
Two versions – one for E1-E3, one for L1-2.
A fabulous set of differentiated maths quizzes that are great for revision and/or end of term. Three quizzes (E1-2, E3-L1, L2) each with four rounds: quick fire, picture (for which you will need to download the relevant PowerPoint – see beelow), true-false, and a timed or team round – depends on level. The author has even thought to include tie breaker questions.
Everything is included except the bell or squeaky toy needed for the quick fire round!
