This is from DfE for interim teacher assessment to show working at the expected standard

The pupil can calculate mentally, ...

53 ÷ 7 + 3 ÷ 7 =

Would that be the same as 56 ÷ 7 ? (says she, hoping not to make a fool of herself)

Even better if they can explain it in a sentence with a fronted adverbial and, possibly, a relevant relative clause.

Extra marks will be given if the answer is in the passive voice or shows mastery of the subjunctive.

Right, not even trying to go there. My self-preservation instinct is far too strong. Over and out!

But surely you want to be judged as ready for Secondary School, Purple Duck?

You are obviously familiar with these terms?!

Oh, I don't know... it really is scary. Is the subjunctive absolutely necessary? Were it not.... :shock:


Yup!

Nice try, I see what you did there!

Thanks, yoyo123 :D

"After a few brief - and fearfully frantic - moments, she was presented with a solution: Oxford Grammar Dictionary! She was safe again and everything was going to be well. Or, rather, would have been if not for a small complication...
