This was a complex challenge to solve with a number of parts to it.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a solution, or part solution.

Here are those that showed solutions to many or all of the parts of the challenge.

Firstly, Class 2 from Goodleigh School in the UK sent in this contribution:

First we put all the names into a tally chart by going down the list one by one.

Then we put the tally numbers into frequency order.

It looked like this:

A=$6$ J=$5$ B=$3$ D=$3$ H=$3$ P=$3$ S=$3$ T=$3$ M=$2$ N=$2$ W=$2$

Then we looked at the chart and we saw that there was a T missing,So we knew that Tessa was away.In the block graph the letters were: JMNPS

Next we have Daisy and Rosie from St Nicolas Junior School, Newbury UK who sent in these two pieces of work:

Lastly this came from Eliza at Moonee Ponds Central Primary School in Australia.

We can only include a small part on this page, as she sent in a big file. You can look at the whole file here .
