As the summer term comes to an end why not have some more fun with a calculator. I expect most children have worked out the certain combinations of letters will form words when the calculator is turned upside down and this page looks a little more closely at this.
For example: 0.7734 will greet you with the word ‘hello’, albeit in a slightly odd font, but perfectly readable.
There follows 5 calculations which give words.
Once children have worked out which letters can be converted into words then there is a tremendous range of words that can be created. The second page suggests just a few of them.
One good idea is to let children find the number that makes a word and then make a clue up , in a similar way to the worksheet. This will involve plenty of excellent practice at working with numbers.
