Mel Muldowney, JustMaths and the MA Teaching Committee Chair, has compiled this Powerpoint presentation containing 10 pairs of questions taken from 2018 assessments. Can you identify whether they come from Key Stage 2 National Tests or from GCSEs?  You might like to show the presentation in a Department meeting to raise awareness of the level of demand in each phase.
