There are seventy eight prisoners in a square cell block of twelve cells. There is one prisoner in one of the cells, two in another cell, three in another, four in another and so on up to twelve prisoners in one of the cells.

(There's more than one solution - send yours in - it might be different to everyone else's!)


This week was Science Week, so for your homework I am keeping with the theme of 'Inventions'.

The focus needs to be your writing, so remember to check your work through for mistakes!
