Isle of Wight – Day 3

Hello! We have had another lovely day!

We started of by taking a chairlift down to the beach. It was a bit scary at first but we all loved it in the end.

Then we got onto a boat and had a cruise around the Needles.

After that, we travelled to Black Gang Chine.

We went to the beach for the final time and had so much fun!

Today was Niaโ€™s birthday and we made sure that we made her feel special! There were balloons, presents, cards and a cake!!

Multiplication Squares!

In the 2ร—2 multiplication square below, the boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the two numbers in that row or column e.g. 7 x 5 = 35 or 4 x 5 = 20.

The 3ร—3 multiplication square below works in the same way. The boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the three numbers in that row or column.

Can you find the missing numbers?

The numbers 1โˆ’9 may be used once and once only.

Challenge – Is there more than one possible set of answers for each row or column?
