Our March 2020 newsletter competition asks you to draw a picture!
For the competition this month, follow the numerical instructions to draw a picture in a grid.

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

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):

Colour the grid

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:

Row sequence

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!):

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.
