Alpha code cards (to save children time writing this out, however with younger children you might want them to write it!)

Differentiation

You might ask more able to try to calculate all of the answers mentally.

Less able children or younger children may need to use Calculators

Resources

Is there anyway of being able to predict which words are worth the most/least?

-

By seeing if the majority of letters are near the end/beginning of the alphabet.

Give the children 2 words. Without working it out can children predict which one is worth the most? Check it.

Are longer words always worth more than shorter words? Ask children to give examples to support their answers.

Get children to mindmap/brainstorm as many words that they can link to Brunel as they can think of?

Ask children to see if they can suggest questions that they would like to find an answer to using the alpha code.

Which word to do with Brunel is worth £77?

-

Engineer

-

Which locality that we know Brunel went to is worth the most/least?

Etc.

Give children alpha code.

A=£1, B=£2, C=£3…..

You can find the value of a word by adding up the value of each letter. What is the value of their own name?

Simon = 19+9+13+15+14.

From Brunel’s 3 names, which one has the highest value/least value?

Isambard? Kingdom?

Brunel?

Look at  a Timeline about significant dates in Brunel’s lifetime.

What age was he when he…..?

How long before he died did he….?

What is  the difference in time between ….. And …..?

(For older or more able children you might want to explore proportions of his lifetime??)

Which letter appears most frequently in any words linked to Brunel?
