  • John Tranter,

  • When I started teaching in the early 1980s I remember seeing my then Head of Department use this idea as a starter with one of his classes. Despite the fact that it was an afternoon lesson and the class had a reputation for being a little 'lively' it turned out to be a great settler and got his lesson of to a very calm start. Thanks Wynn Davies for the idea. I wonder where he is now.
