  • Hi,
    Is there an editable version of the lower ability task?
    Thanks

    • Hi Allie00,
      Lovely idea :) I'll ask our design team to make an editable version :)

    • Hi there Allie00,
      Our lovely resource creation team have created this and emailed the new resource to you! It will also be available to download within 48 hours, and you can find it either as a new resource, or under 'Alternative versions' above. I hope you find it useful!

  • For the lower ability I have found the problems themselves are quite hard to read(ambidextrous)  - I find they are concentrating more on reading skills than maths skills...I knwo in word problems they go hand in hand but easier word probelms would be great!

  • I will be using this as revision questions. However, the Lower Ability version is identical to the Main Version! I know there is an editable version too, but I thought I'd point it out!

    • Hey there Julia,
      I've looked into this for you and the Lower ability version was created upon request from another customer, who asked that the calculation column be removed from the resource for a group of children who were not yet secure with brackets. We do have the editable version available so that you can amend the questions to meet your requirements. Please let me know if you would like a lower ability version of this resource creating and I'll certainly see what we can do for you.

      Have a lovely evening! :)

    • Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch! :) I've just taken a look at this and the spelling seems to be correct - it may be that you're viewing an older version which has been corrected. Could you download the current version from the site and let me know if you're still finding the error? Have a lovely day :)
