Ideas for use in class
  • For use as a lesson starter. We learn how to fill in and read timetables. As a whole class, pairs or individuals will need to replicate the timetable and fill it in working out 24 hour clock conversions and adding amounts of time. 3 differentiated questions set problems about time conversions to be solved. The scenario could be revisited in the plenary.
