English: Wooden toadstools in Coed Moel Famau There are four wooden toadstools at the side of the forest track here. They are labelled A,B,C and D. I assume that they are associated with the numeracy (and literacy?) trail that has been set up in Coed Moel Famau. See also 1249929 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

After attempting a few of the literacy and numeracy practice tests for the QTS exam I decided I needed to do a bit more revision. Thankfully, I have a year to master the art of grammar and punctuation before I take the dreaded tests.

I already own the recommended books, but want some more practice without having to pay anything. My aim is to test a few numeracy and a few literacy websites that aim to help with key skills whilst working through the books.

The official site is:

http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/careers/traininganddevelopment/professional/b00211213/numeracy – numeracy practice test and resources

http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/careers/traininganddevelopment/professional/b00211208/literacy  – literacy practice test and resources

The first sites I am going to try is

http://www.grammar-monster.com  – a basic literacy site with tests

http://www.aplusgamer.com/index.jhtml?partner=^AF4^xdm005&gclid=CNKG8tmYibcCFWXJtAodU3QAxg  – an online game app for maths and english

http://keyskills4u.excellencegateway.org.uk/  – a key skills site that requires a free login but provides feedback

and http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resources/ – a website for teachers or those hoping to become teachers.

I will document my success and failures here. anyone who has any suggestions please do share or let us know how you yourself get on too.

Best wishes for the week

Rachael
