Mia, Joe, Freddie E, Milena, Grace and Jamie worked well together and think there are 43 days that can not be shown. What do you think? Did they get them all?

Our Quento Puzzles

We've used Quento in our maths lessons. Both Sami and Morgan enjoyed using Quento and decided to have a go at making their own puzzles.

 An example of how to solve the puzzle above: 'Make 5 with 2 numbers', 1 + 4 and 'Make 6 with 3 numbers', 4 - 1 + 3.

If you have a go at any of the children's puzzles, let us know by leaving a comment how you get on.
