It’s half term next week, but that’s no reason to abandon maths and puzzling, if, like me, that’s your thing. But first a couple of jokes!
Here are links to activities that you may wish to try…

Something of a challenge to think about….
You have a bucket, a container which holds 5 litres of water and container which holds 3 litres of water. You have nothing else.
How can you make the bucket contain EXACTLY 7 litres of water?
Collect lots of sticks or twigs. Can you make the numbers 1-9 using the sticks? BUT the rule is, you need to make the number 1 with one stick, the number 2 with two sticks and so on. Is it possible? If it helps, you can use sticks of any size.
Here’s an interesting idea – can you find other ways to write numbers? This is written in Korean and shows us not only how to say the number but how it is written. I wonder what you will discover…
Have a lovely break,
Maths is beautiful and I love books too!
