tempus fugit

As well as learning about the topic area and learning new vocabulary, pupils will…

• develop time management skills
• practise solving problems

Overview

Pupils have to work as a team to complete a set of tasks within fifty minutes (years 6-8) or sixty minutes (years 4-5). Pupils are given instructions and information, which they must read carefully to complete the tasks successfully. There is also a bonus task to win more points. Teams must work independently. Time penalties are added for; poor/off-task behaviour and any advice or answers they are given by an adult. Each team is given a task card, which is stamped each time a task is successfully completed and they will receive a number to unlock the padlock to the prize box. Once a team has completed all the tasks, they have the chance to unlock the code to the box and win the prize inside.
