Year 2 have been revising addition and subtraction. To spice things up they were given a challenge!
They were asked to solve a Tarsia Puzzle. They were showed the completed puzzle which was either a triangle or star shape. This was then broken up into seperate triangles and on each triangle they had different calculations to solve. Once they solved the calculations they could match the puzzle pieces together to find the answers.
The completed puzzles were hidden around the room to allow children a sneak peak if they needed a clue about where to put the different puzzle pieces.
Even the adults had to think carefully about where to put each puzzle piece!
Tarsia Puzzles need lots of perserverance and resilience and Year 2 definitely proved they have plenty of it! Some children really challenged themselves and even managed to complete 2 Tarsia Puzzles!
