Detective Trail

Age Range: 7 - 11
By: Amanda Patterson, Debra De Gray, Samm Gillet and Linda Elsey

The children can use compasses, trundle wheels and string to solve Maths questions set out around the grounds of your school.

We have used the kidnap of a bunny called Fluffy for the kidnap victim.

The groups can be differentiated according to the questions set. Each answer can be used to crack a code to form a word which reveals the whereabouts of Fluffy.

This is a good opportunity for the children to leave the class and practice their maths skills, something we do not get to do very often.
