NRICH is an excellent site to access a wide range of age appropriate Problem Solving and Reasoning questions. There is a super facility to access `LIVE PROBLEMS` where you can submit your solutions , gain a certificate and wait for responses from other children and compare your findings. 

If you have a go, please let me know if you submit a solution . I would love to share your success and enjoyment during Special Mention Assembly.

Primary Live Problems (

14th November 2022

Today, is the start of Maths Week England and to celebrate this St Martin's and St. Therese's Classes joined with between 6 and 8 thousand children from 275 schools across Great Britian to have a live Problem-Solving lesson hosted by Charlie and Liz from NRICH.

Please see the photographs below this post.

We had a fun 45-minute session solving various number problems and learning more about the NRICH website.

I witnessed such enthusiasm and engagement from the children, as well as seeing a real sense of fun in learning and trying out different solutions to the problems that it was a fantastic start to the week.

Charlie and Liz introduced the children to the `Live Problems on the NRICH site which the children can have a go at themselves and submit their reasoning and answers to NRICH themselves to share their joy of learning.

You can access the live problems :
