Just in case you’ve missed them: we have two Functional English / Literacy resources based on the popular TV programme. Jodie Travis’s Hired or Fired has been on the site since 2006 but is still as relevant today.

Devised for L1 as a first lesson for ratio utilising practical applications for ratio understanding. Please print the last slide as a worksheet to accompany the PPT.

Editor's notes

Introductory example using a KitKat bar, followed by other everyday applications including screen wash, hair tint and paints.  Also (very nicely) covers equality & diversity with discussion about the proportion of White British players in the 2018 England squad.

Lovely, rather unusual ratio worksheet. One question involves working backwards from a paint mixing chart to discover what colour paint you will end up with! Although only a single sheet there is a good mix of questions building up from L1 to L2. With answer sheet and Numeracy / Functional maths mapping.
