## Calculating with analogue time

Submitted by Tony Jenkins on Sat, 2017-12-16 16:18

#### Level: E2, E3, L1

A series of questions that asks the learner to read a start time in words, draw this time on an analogue clock face then calculate a second time from a question and draw this on a second clock face.
I am using this with an E2 learner who wants to improve her time telling skills and it has presented a good challenge for her.

## Using timetables to plan a journey

#### Level: E3, L1

Students regularly tell me they cannot read bus timetables and just wait for the next one to come along! This activity asks learners to find the most appropriate bus for my journey.
I print the timetables (pages 2-8) out enlarged to A3 and stick them to walls of my classroom.

## Murder at the Grange parts 2 and 3

Submitted by Ruth Read on Fri, 2013-12-06 09:05

#### Level: E2, E3, L1, L2

This is an adaptation of Murder at the Grange, which my students have always enjoyed.

I wanted to extend the work on calculating with time, so learners have to use and extend timetables and calculate multi-stage journey times. I also thought it would be good to have some female characters!

There’s a version for L1-2 and one for E2-3, although there is some overlap. In the L1-2 version I have used 24-hour times.
