    I like puzzles and think that they do have some educational value, particularly in aiding the development of critical thinking and resilience amongst pupils. That is why I have the Pooch Puzzles series (https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?authorId=191328&q=pooch puzzles&shop=mathsmutt ) intended to help develop mathematical thinking and cognitive development through problem solving activities.

    Clearly, there are many users of this site who disagree - but there are also many enigmatologists and cruciverbalists amongst us.

    I have opened a new board at https://www.pinterest.co.uk/mathsmutt/educational-puzzles-crosswords-sudokos-and-more/ and invite anyone who wishes to do so to add existing Pinterest links for TES puzzles which they would like added to the board below , or PM me with a link to any of their TES puzzles .

    Please excuse the spelling of sudoku - thread titles can't be edited!:oops:

    What a great idea! I have just pm'ed you.
    Like you, I agree that any type of logical thinking activity has an important place in learning in MFL and no doubt most other subjects. Puzzles etc. serve to develop thinking and retention skills through enquiry, discovery, conclusion and consolidation.
    Thank you. :)
