Professor Assessor’s Students, Milly Molly Mandy


Milly Molly Mandy was as sweet as sugar candy and as bubbly as shandy. In her pockets, she kept handfuls of sugar candy. When she didn’t know the answers, the candy came in handy. Whenever she became bored in class, she popped in a candy to chew. Then she told Professor Assessor, she’d answer in a minute or two. Baloney Maloney knew one of the questions only. His theory of the universe was that, all things begin and end in either this or that. Smarty Marty’s developed this idea somewhat – suggesting that everything in the universe was a matter of nines a lot (the same number of the planets in the Solar system). So, for example, if Smarty Marty threw a party, it started at nine o’ clock.

The Right Write Question

1. Write five maths sums for Milly Molly Mandy to solve.

2. Write five things that occur in the universe according to Baloney Maloney’s theory.

3. Write five things that occur in the universe according to Smarty Marty’s theory.

4. Develop your own theory of the universe to explain phenomenon – why do things happen as they do and what makes the world like it is ?
