    I’ve touched on the UK National Grid with kids at open days in the UK.  Certainly, the 9-11 year olds are already familiar with it.  They all come out with “Across the hall and up the stairs” as soon as I mention grids.  They all know “My very educated mother” as well.  At that stage I usually say, “I’ll sit down, and you can teach me.”  Well done the UK National Curriculum (or well done Wikipedia). Where does the NZ National Grid start?  DaveP
