I am a Teaching Assistant for the Maths Dept. at a secondary school in Herefordshire, England. We are in lockdown because of Covid-19. I am setting an optional weekly maths challenge with prizes for years 7-10 sent to them by email. I used Suitcase Logic and Birdwatching Logic tasks for the first challenge. I had a total of 185 entries from 118 pupils. 20% of pupils took part with 43% of entries returned correct. I am awarding a prize to one correct entry from each year group. Thank you for this resource - it was brilliant.
