World of Tan 11 - the Past, Present and Future
Children you might like to:
find different ways of writing 07:30 s
how in three distinct ways the things you take to school everyday/ occasionally
write about what you would like to do at school this year.
Parents you might like to:
examine other aspects of a youngster's day with regard to the 24 hour clock
get the children to 'close their eyes and imagine the journey to school', with you questioning them about what they pass, what they see, who they recognise.
make up strange words, like 'stupendous' that could be used for ... lots of, a small amount of, a long time and a very dull day.
talk through the summer vacation and list all the things that have been done. You never know Miss Chow King may be their new teacher!
Teachers you might like to:
build on the root words microscope/ telescope and investigate the issue of enlargement and scale factors - making things larger and smaller examine different types of time pieces used through history
get the children to estimate a passage of time - 3 minutes say and see how accurate/ inaccurate they have been. How can you represent these trials?
build upon words like 'cough up' and sewn up'. What other words do the children know and what do they understand by them?

The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice.
