- For Teachers
"The under-10s" must mean the chlidren under the age of ten. What should we use when we want to refer to the children above 10?
But Merhgan wants to divide them in half.
I'd say 'Right - those aged ten and over gather round me. The under-tens can stay there for a minute.' (...or reverse the over and under; it depends which group you want the ten-year-olds in.)
(Of course, as soon as you reach your tenth birthday you're already over ten, but children don't see it like that.)
