    Has anyone got any practical suggestions for helping children take the test, now that the only equipment that they are allowed is a pencil. Any ideas gratefully received.

    Get them to understand how to draw and use an empty number line / how to add and subtract by partitioning / draw arrays to help them to multiply and divide. :D

    They can have a ruler so could use that as a number line

    Unfortunately, children are allowed only a pencil and a rubber. The instructions clearly stipulate that they are NOT allowed a calculator(!) or a ruler. Madness but there you go! As lillipad said, get them comfortable with partitioning, drawing own number lines and arrays.
