Really loving this resource, although my students noticed an error. The number 259 ends up being coloured both red and yellow as it fits two clues. This throws out the pattern shown on the answer page.

Thank you so much for taking the time to point this out to us, Emma. I have updated the resource by changing the number 259 to 159. This means that only the yellow clue applies. Thank you again for your help!
