Revision Fun For Clever Kids
Maths Fun for Cool Kids
Perfect in the build up to 11+. The activities are accessible, inviting and fun, while managing to remain incredibly worthwhile - not an easy balancing act, but one which Katie has most certainly achieved.
Whoever thought revision could be fun?! My kids were hooked straight away. A brilliant challenge for half term which kept their brains ticking over. As a parent I loved the way they had to apply what they have learnt at school in a different way. Please write a follow up soon!
I was a bit sceptical when I bought this book because it had ‘revision’ on it, but without prompting my 9 year old picked it up and looked through every page saying how fun it looked . A lovely illustrated and well thought out book filled with fun puzzles and problems to keep little ones busy and learning !
Just brilliant.... and not just for kids... my husband and I had fun going through it with our 11 and 12 year old daughters. A great and fun way to learn. Could not recommend it more !!!
My children absolutely loved the inventive manner the puzzles and questions are presented in. There are various tasks at all levels within the specified range - it is a fabulous resource.
Why Read the Book if you can Watch the Film?
Why read the book when you can watch the film?
I often ask children this question when they are preparing for school interviews. Everyone knows that it’s a good idea to have a book to speak about at interview or a favourite author at the ready. What was good about the book? How did the author draw you in? Was there anything you didn’t like? For those who enjoy English as a subject, I like to extend this question into the realms of debate. Why read the book when you can watch the film?
Documentary Brain Food
TV or Not TV? That is the question.
This week, Katie tells us how selective TV viewing can improve your child's general knowledge and help him or her get to the top of the class.
When screen time should be monitored carefully, it’s a good idea to have a ready made list of alternatives, particularly if your child has the tendency to choose something that you know is probably not a great choice. So, some ideas for you here: some documentaries that your junior school child should see!
