Our Other Clock

We've shared previously the clock display that we both have on the wall in our classrooms. That clock is designed to share and remind children about some maths facts and vocabulary in an interesting way.

Last week, we realised that we've not written about what's above. Eight years ago (yes that long), Liam got given a new clock for his classroom wall. Upon receiving it, he realised that the plastic front could easily (reasonably easily) removed. So, he removed it and added some reminders about telling the time to the clock face. More information cloud be added. Different information could be added. Maybe different clocks in different places in the school having different information on them? It's a quick, easy (reasonably) and low-cost way of sharing time vocabulary.

TMBett16 Presentation

We've attended the Bett Show in some way for almost ten years. In addition, we've been able to attend the Friday evening TeachMeet for each of the last four years. We always come away from both buzzing, revitalised and full of new ideas.

This year, Liam decided to put himself down to present at the TeachMeet, and sure enough (after spending all day telling anyone who'd listen that he hoped his name wouldn't come up) the random name chooser fell - late in the evening - on '@ThisIsLiamM'. Liam presented about ideas previously shared on this blog and elsewhere. His slides can be found below, along with other relevant links.
