No Pens Wednesday

As part of ‘No Pens Wednesday’ we set the children in Year 2 a ‘stick it’ challenge! The children were given a square filled with boxes containing mathematical clues to solve. They were also given boxes with the answers in to match up with the clues. The children worked in teams to talk through the clues and all of the possible answers, but they had to be careful as some of the answers could match with more than one clue!

 This challenge encouraged children to use their verbal reasoning skills and discuss all of the possibilities together. The children really enjoyed solving the puzzles and showed excellent co-operation and teamwork!
