## 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

Submitted by Amanda Kelly on Sun, 2015-11-29 18:50

#### 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.

## Calculating with Time

Submitted by Karen Foot on Tue, 2015-03-03 17:17

#### Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

I wanted to create a resource to enable my students to practise calculating with time.

Most of the students work in Wiltshire, but live in Yorkshire, so I thought it would be fun if they explored different travel methods to Yorkshire to see which was the fastest. The travel distances and times were from the Internet and I created this resource differentiated for Levels 1 and 2.

Editor’s note
Clever differentiation.

## 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.

## Week's TV Listings

Submitted by Kathy Crockford on Sat, 2010-10-23 15:38

#### Level: E1, E2, E3, L1

A multi-functional resource for Literacy or Numeracy. Sample TV listings by day, programme, start and end times, channel and genre. Use for alphabetic or numeric sorting, skimming and scanning exercises, literacy social sight vocabulary for days of the week, numeracy exercises for calculating time, etc. This resource contains some sample exercise questions to use which can be developed further according to need. I laminated the sheets and then cut up into days so lower level learners can move the elements around. Higher level learners can work from the whole page sheets as well.
