Here is today's puzzle from Mathematician Zoe Griffiths. If for some reason it doesn't work in your school, again please see the YouTube link below.
Today's story, 'How Was That Built?' is suitable for slightly older children, perhaps up to Y6, as we meet an artist Katie Hickey and Roma Agrawi, one of the engineers who worked on the famous Shard building in London..
Children will learn about structures of buildings, and in a practical task will learn why triangles are such a popular shape for building. What's more, Katie even teach them how to draw the Shard.
You might want to have pieces of tape and card (and perhaps paper fasteners if you have them) ready for this.

Wednesday’s Daily Challenge
Suitable for almost any age group, including adults – why not put them up in the staffroom?! (We’ve included the answers below.)
Yesterday I needed £1 for a parking meter, but I don’t carry much change these days. I dug around and found ten coins under the seat. They were a mixture of 20p, 10p and 5p coins. Luckily when I added them up they came to exactly £1.
How many of each coin did I have?
