This is a problem I used when I was teaching in Notts a few years ago and have since used again with Y6. It’s a good example of working backwards; eliminating redundant information; and partner work. As an extension, the children changed the names of the teams and re-wrote the scores using the same pattern. For the really able, they produced a similar problem but changed the wording of some of the problems.
I altered the team names to match the then current employees – more for amusement value than anything else.
Let me know if you try it and it works. It is available in Smart Notebook, Promethean but the quality has changed during the transition from one to another. Best solution: use the word doc and drop it into your own table. I am happy to email the files for you if you want, can’t upload them here.
