Bonfire Night Maths for Entry 2 Functional Skills
Written to look at the reformed Entry Level 2 ‘Measures, shape and space’ content, the main focus of this resource is positional vocabulary, 3D shapes and time. It also covers aspects of Number and Data. It is not recommended for the initial teaching of skills (underpinning). If used for this, ensure all the ‘maths words’ (p1) are covered in advance and supply learners with real-life materials such as counters (I use pasta or dried beans) and 3D shapes where needed. Bonfire Night is a familiar context for most learners but the ‘Fireworks words’ should also be discussed.
Fully mapped to the reformed FS content and includes teaching notes and marking guidance.
