Logic/Problem Solving

Logic and problem solving club

Logic and problem solving club gives the children an opportunity to solve problems, often using logic, in a range a different contexts. We will challenge ourselves to use our brains and work as a team to achieve our goal. 

Week 1

To kick start our club, we used our logical thinking to solve a camping problem where we felt silly when the answers were revealed as some of the answers were obvious! We followed this with some 'haunted house,' Cludeo style, problems and  some Suduko. To end our first club session we solved a car park problem where using our number knowledge would give us a clue to the answer.

 Tomato Problem

We were given the problem to solve a problem that farms have in Napel. We needed to design and build a cart to move and protect the farmers tomatoes when they take them to market. We tested our designs to see who had solved the problem in the most successful way.
