It is almost unbelievable to think that we are nearly at the end of the first school term and that 1/6 of the year has already gone!

  • Identify one particular area that you need to work on and improve

Problems Solving

Can you think laterally to solve these two questions?

Challenge 1:

Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected robber. They don’t know what he looks like but they know his name is John and that he is inside the house. The police bust in on a carpenter, a lorry driver, a mechanic and a fireman all playing poker. Without hesitation or communication of any kind, they immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know they’ve got their man?

Challenge 2:

A man and his son are in a car accident. The father is seriously injured and passes away. The child is taken to hospital with a shocking leg injury. When he gets there, the surgeon says, ‘I can’t operate on this boy – for he is my son!!!’ How can this possibly be?
