Investigating Square and Prime Numbers

This week, year 5 have carried out lots of investigations around prime and square numbers. Why don’t you try them too?

What is a prime number? Are prime numbers always odd?

Can you add two prime numbers to make a square number?

Can you put the numbers 1-17 into a magic square so that all the rows and columns add up to a prime number?

We also played a loop card game involving questions about multiples, factors, prime numbers and square numbers.
