New CurriculumWorkbook Packs


Your child may be able to calculate 33 + 53 = 86 ... but do they understand it? Can they apply it to money or unit problems?

Something often spoken about Maths in schools is that it's taught with a lack of practical application. A cramped syllabus and limited time means children often learn plenty of methods of solving sums but not how to apply those skills to real life problems.

The government clocked onto this and changed the 2016 SATs to include two new problem solving or application papers after the new mental arithmetic based paper.

We think that Maths becomes truly engaging when it is applied to real life situations and it is with these practical problems that Maths often becomes more understandable. It's a perfect example of...learning from example!

Enter the Exam Ninja Problem Solving Pack for children aged between 9 and 11. This perfectly formed pack contains three workbooks that are stuffed full of common problems that your child can only solve by first understanding the problem and then applying their Maths skills. No launching into methods!

The topics within the workbooks include time, money, temperature, percentages, puzzles, units, measures and plenty more. All the questions seek to test your children's interpretation of a mathematical problem as much as their skills to solve it.

The three workbooks are suitable for children aged between 9 and 11 and all answers are included.

Each Problem Solving Pack (Ages 9-11) (Product Code EN9105) contains...
 1x KS2 Problem Solving Workbook 3 (Ninja Code: EN1447, RRP £3.50)
 1x KS2 Problem Solving Workbook 4 (Ninja Code: EN1448, RRP £3.50)
 1x 10 Minutes A Day Problem Solving (Ages 9-11) (Ninja Code: EN1761, RRP £5.95)

Having great fun with this! The children love the 10 minute clock and the exercises that go with it-really making them think outside the box! Lots of reasoning to work out the problems, just what they need.



Perfect for my needs. Thank you



Good problem solving and reasoning books, they are really getting my children to think!!!



Really useful resources, particularly for the most able. Children enjoy the ten minute problem solving activities - great lesson starter!



Great for learning how to tackle different problems. The ten minute exercises are a useful for children who like a challenge and may become bored by repetitive exercises.

() - Relates to 10 Minutes A Day Problem Solving (Ages 9-11)


Useful book for quick starter activities or home revision. Problem solving questions not really at the standard or in the format of SATS questions so would not recommend specifically for SATS preparation.
