Free escape room activities

This activity was designed for Year 5 students in the UK, and will also suit ages 9-11 elsewhere in the world. Topics covered include perimeter and area, figurative language, homophones, basic math and logic, angles, the solar system, a bit of beginner French, and lots of fun codes to break. Measurements are metric, but they won’t make a big difference to the enjoyment of the activities or to the necessary calculations.
