Halloween Maths for Entry 1 Number

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.

It is not recommended for the initial teaching of skills (underpinning). If used for this, ensure all the ‘maths words’ (page 1) are covered in advance and supply learners with real-life materials such as counters (I use pasta or dried beans) and money. Halloween is a familiar context for most learners but the ‘Halloween words’ should also be discussed in advance. I referred to SAMs (sample assessment materials) and practice texts from Pearson, City & Guilds, OCR, NCFE and Open Awards for inspiration with some of the questions! All such materials are available freely from the relevant AO web sites.

Fully mapped to the reformed FS content and includes teaching notes and marking guidance.
