FE Magazine Issue 6

From the editors

Have you got your 2010 calendar sorted? Here are some more ideas about calendars; you can also find out about festivals to celebrate, and try some calendar tricks.

Last month we suggested that you download and make a dodecahedral calendar to impress your friends and colleagues. January is a good time to look at calendars with your learners.

There are many sites from which you can download calendars. Numeracy and GCSE students could explore the calendar – why not suggest they make up questions for others in the class based on the calendar? 

When will Easter be this year and why?
When is Ramadan? What other festivals will be celebrated by members of your class and when will those be?
Why not impress your classes by doing one of the Calendar Tricks as a starter? Watch a video explaining how to do the trick! NRICH has a different calendar problem.

You may also be interested to read an article about calendars and their history in Issue 13 of the Primary Magazine.
