Great resources. Thank you.
Fantastic for problem solving - I have just used some of this for a observation lesson with Year 5s and it worked really well - they identified all the different pentominoes, then fitted them into shapes. It provided lots of opportunities for talk about reflection, translation etc., and as easily differentiated as well as being an engaging activity - thank you.
