    • We will have a look at some of these puzzles tomorrow. They’re not really that difficult. Just work it through slowly. See you tomorrow.

  1. I showed my class in Reading, England your blog and they loved the idea of maths puzzles on the blog. So you have inspired us to put some on! See if you can complete them

    • Dear Miss Lowe
      Thank you for your kind comment. We were very excited to receive your comment on our blog. We are very proud of what we have achieved with our work so far this year. We look forward to getting onto your blog, but unfortunately, the link you sent us does not work. Our teacher will continue trying, but can you please check that the address you provided is correct. If it does work we would be very happy to try the maths puzzles on your blog.
      It would be great if we could keep in touch with your students as well. Hope to hear from you soon. Mrs Francis and the 5/6 F students.
