    • I used this with both Year 3 and Year 4 and they coped well with all the clues but I wrote a different clue 4 with easier mathematical questions. I can email it if it's any use to anyone.

  • I used this with a Year 5 and a Year 6 pupil in a one-to-one situation- they found it challenging but very motivating!! I completed it too just for fun- and I loved it too! Excellent- more like this please

  • Hi there, 
    I think there is a mistake on clue number 2. It goes down the alphabet as Q,R,S,T,T instead of Q,R,S,T,U.
