ART DISCUSSION CHALLENGE - HORSES
The classic Sudoku game involves a grid of 81 squares. The grid is divided into nine blocks, each containing nine squares. The rules of the game are simple : each of the nine blocks has to contain all the numbers 1-9 within its squares. Each number can only appear once in a row, column or box.
Have a go at the puzzle above. Can you solve it using the Sudoku rules? :)

2 METRES CHALLENGE
Just remember it's:
The length of a musk ox or fully grown llama,
Three Rubik's cubes plus one Keir Starmer,
Eleven seven-inch singles by Bananarama,
That's what two metres is.
Alternatively it's :
1/192,199,930th of a single moon beam,
2.2 times greater than Munch's The Scream,
About 10 and a half packets of custard creams,
That'll be two metres.
If easier, think:
Thirty-three pairs of dragonfly wings,
The length of a yoga mat belonging to Sting,
Two one-metre long pieces of string,
That comes to two metres.
Or failing that, imagine:
0.00000091 of the coast of mainland Wales,
18.2648402 cricket bails,
One and a quarter Prunella Scales,
That's two metres.

This poem made me chuckle. At the moment, when we go out, we need to try and stay two metres away from people. Try writing your own poem that tells people how long two metres is.... (To help you out, Mr Spotwood or Mr Brown are almost two metres tall. My ceiling is about two metres.)
Extra challenge - Find out who is Munch and why is he famous? What is a musk ox? Who are Bananarama?
