Many of you play games online – but do you think there is such a thing as TOO MUCH online gaming?

More than half of young people between the ages of five and 15 now play games online, and in 2019 spent an average of nine hours and 30 minutes a week gaming! At that rate, you could have watched all the Harry Potter films in just two days, or seen every match in a Premier League season in just 2 weeks!

That’s a lot of time. Think of all the other things you could be doing!

What advice would you give each other in response to these questions? Post your ideas in the comments section and help each other to stay safe and healthy over the holidays whilst playing online.

  • What can you do if you start feeling snappy or stressed when you’re playing a game online?
  • How can you make sure you stay in control of how much time you spend gaming?

World of Work 7/7/20

Create your own Monopoly game

Have you ever played Monopoly? It’s a fantastic game that involves money and buying and selling property in London. Each played receives money at the start from the banker. This money can be spent on streets where you can buy houses. Careful where you go – if you land on another players property, you have to pay them money. Cards in the middle give you rewards such as Birthday money or you might lose money if you have to pay your taxes.

Task 1: Design Task

Design the Board

It could be set in Whitechapel. Which streets would you include? Which landmarks would you include e.g. Whitechapel Market, East London Mosque, Thomas Buxton? How will players make/ lose money

Or it could be a Mathopoly game – it could include Maths questions as the players go round. What will the rules of the game be?

Task 2: Writing task

Write the instructions of the game.

  • What do players need to start the game?
  • How much money does each player start with?
  • What is the aim of the game?
  • What are the rules
  • How do you win?

Sentence starters:

  • First, next, after that
  • If the player…… then they must….
  • If the next player…. then they will lose…
  • The aim of the game is to ….
  • When a card is taken….

Here are some ideas:

* A bank account can help save you money

* You can get hold of your money almost anywhere with a debit card

* You get regular statements about the money in your account, and your  income and outgoings

* When you are older, wages can be paid directly into and bills paid directly out of your account
