  • Hiya, On the Higher ability worksheet Clue 1, 7/8 - 2/8 = 5/8 and not 2/8 as the answers say.

  • Fantastic resource! My class love these maths mysteries - I find them particularly useful when, like this one, they have a LA option or they have an editable download. FYI the answers on the LA download (clue 5) contains errors.

    • Hello again swilson40!
      Could you please tell me a bit more about where the mistake seems to be in the lower ability version? I've just checked Clue 5 and couldn't quite seem to spot it. Looking forward to hearing from you! :)

  • Is there any opportunity for this to be made editable? I was hoping to make it more personalised like the other mystery resources.

    • Good morning Stpetersy3,
      Thanks for spotting this! We'll let our create team know right away! In the meantime I would recommend using the "Editable" version that you can find in the "Alternative versions" box just under the pink download button. You can also make your own labels here: http://www.twinkl.co.uk/create I hope this helps! :)

  • Please could you make a lower ability version of this or any of the others? I am wanting to use this for my Y4 class in transition who will still be Y3s. That would be brilliant!! x

    • Good morning sophiepearson,
      Thanks for your lovely request - it looks like a HA and LA version might already be available. I'll ask our design team to look into making them available in the alternative versions box :)

  • Is there a year 3 version of this as a lot of the questions are not covered in the year 3 curriculum?

    • Hi emedwards,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) This resource is designed for use across year 3 and 4. However, we have asked whether it is possible to create a lower ability version more suitable for year 3 :)

  • Hi I have seen some resources like this (KS1 mystery of the melting ice creams) prepared with differentiation. Is there anyway that this one could have a lower ability and a higher ability version as well?

      Thank you so much for getting in touch! I'm glad your class are enjoying these mysteries!
