Yesterday we had the Happy Puzzle Company come to our school and we did a variety of baffling puzzles in our maths workshops. Everyone persevered and did very well dealing with the challenges. None of the puzzles were easy yet some weren't too hard. We got to learn new abilities that we hadn't used before. It was really fun and we wish we can do it again!
This is what some Year 6 children said:
"I felt proud that I solved the puzzle. It helped me think outside of the box."
"It was really fun because you had to work together as a team."
"It was tricky and sometimes frustrating."
"It was a good exercise for your mind."
"Teamwork is the key to success."
"If all fails - try again!"
