March 2020 newsletter competition
For this year's competition, colour all of the cells in the grid below either light or dark to create a picture (or use this Excel workbook if you find it easier):
One row and one column have already been done for you.
Each series of numbers represents a sequence of unbroken blocks of black squares. So for the row above the sequence is:
There's a block of 3 black squares, then a block of 5 black squares, then a single black square.
For the column above there is a block of 4 black squares, another block of 4 black squares, a single black square and then a block of 2 black squares.
When you're filling in the grid, you'll probably find it useful to mark not only the squares which you know are black, but also those which you know aren't black.
When you've finished, send your picture to this email address (if you can identify what it shows, so much the better!):
Send your competition entry to this email address.
The winner of our £50 Amazon voucher will be drawn out of the traditional Wise Owl electronic sorting hat (can you have something which is traditional AND electronic?) in time for the next newsletter in April.
