    We have had great fun with the ‘ Who stole the cup task?’ which I changed slightly to make it have a little more local interest setting it up as a Derby County v Forest game – including a powerpoint with Derby Chants/ Photo’s and news flashes to set the task up – its a good job our Head was in hospital with a broken leg at the time as he is a real Forest Fan!!!

    We have put Who Goes Where and Who Stole the Cup into our scheme of work and have used both with 3 year groups, very successfully.
    Pupils take a while to get used to not knowing what to do, but careful questions help them to find a way through. Always try the task yourself so you are aware of the kinds of questions to ask without giving too much away.
