Description

Revision for KS2 SATs can often be stressful or trying for children, which is why CGP has released their colourful Practise and Learn series. The range of revision guides provides practice questions for examinations while injecting an element of fun into proceedings.

Acting as a cross between a study book and a work book, the Practise and Learn guide provides a clear, simple and fun ‘learn as you work’ structure that lets children work through sections of the subject one at a time.

In the case of the Practise and Learn Key Stage 2 Times Tables guide for 7-11 year olds, it is packed with a wide range of exercises and brain-teasing tasks to help your child learn their 3-12 times tables as well as a host of mixed questions. It also comes with useful tips at the top of each page to help your child get started.

For parents, the answers are all included in an easy-to-use pull-out section, along with suggestions for helping children get the most out of the book. It’s the perfect revision guide for extra practice outside of school, which shakes off the cobwebs of traditional revision and offers a more fun alternative.

Over the booklet’s 44 pages, your children will learn, through the help of colourful cartoons and diagrams how to do everything when it comes to multiplication. It has everything that they will need to know for the current Curriculum examinations and does so in easy-to-digest chunks.

With KS2 SATs exams coming up, now is the time to get your child practicing all the subject basics. With this booklet, at least they will conduct their revision in a fun, practical and colourful way.

Ordered this for my daughter who is nearly 7 and who is capable at maths but not confident. She opened the book and disappeared with it immediately to start filling it in. It's obviously hitting the right notes in terms of engagement at her level! From the brief look I have had at it, it contains a good combination of "straight" tables testing with some imaginative games and exercises. It's pitched at a lower level than my usual tutoring, but I would definitely recommend for the 7/8 age group.

I bought this book for my ten year old son to help build up his confidence with his times tables. He enjoyed doing the various exercises and seemed to look forward to working through them. We went at his pace and completed two pages every night. I would recommend this book to people looking for a light touch and creative way to help children learn their times tables. Thanks Ejam Ninja for your recommendation and excellent service.

I ordered this for my nine-year-old who had steadfastly refused to engage with any other learning materials regarding times tables before. The layout is clear and simple, with four pages dedicated to each times table from 3 to 12, with increasing difficulty, with a section of mixed questions at the end. The times table is practised at first, i.e. good old-fashioned writing out by hand and memorising it; the subsequent exercises and activities (equations, worded and diagrammatic problems) help to reinforce the table just learned. There are pictures and funny cartoon characters to brighten things up and engage. While not exactly volunteering to do his maths, he at least doesn't complain when I ask him to sit down at the table, whereas before my suggestion to practise his times tables was greeted with deep sighs and a sense of failure before he'd even started. For that reason alone it gets full marks from me, and for that price it is definitely worth trying if your child is struggling. Recommended.

I reviewed this with my 7 year old cousin, who is just starting to really get into maths in primary school. She found it instantly accessible, being brightly coloured, well illustrated and clear. I think it really helped that it was something that came from a family member to complete together, rather than something that they were sent home with from school. The use of everyday objects in the maths questions is, in my view, a good approach as it helps to put maths in the context of everyday life. That said, I think it's still something that you should work through with your child so that they understand why there is context in counting and multiplying objects; this wasn't clear to me as a child, when I found myself thinking 'I don't care how long it takes Jenny to get to Leicester!', but if you can get use tools like this to get across how maths is a language for describing and understanding the real wider world then you are onto a winner - i.e. I talked to my cousin about how many pet cats there are in the UK compared to pet dogs, and what that says about which is most popular and why etc.That said, it could also be used as a straight exercise book, although I think kids get a lot more out of maths, stats and economics in the long term if they can grasp how it is essentially just a very exact form of language for understanding, communicating and explaining the world.

Another in the practice and learn series about times tables. It goes about as far as you sensibly can to make times tables fun without going into 'wacky' territory. It looks that the standard times tables tropes in various ways and contextualises them in real world terms and problems. My daughter liked it as much as you can expect a child to like a book about the dull end of arithmetic.

As part of my 'day-time' job I am a college lecturer and so when anything educational comes in my direction I tend to be really critical in my evaluation of its utility. Having young children and being a little frustrated by their low motivation to learn - give me my adult learners anyway - I got this tables book with a view to finding inspiration and ideas on how to get them moving with this all important aspect of numeracy. My first impression was that the book was colourful and grabbed the attention of the prospective reader. However in this respect it didn't appear any different from the usual table books which succeed or fail simply on the ability of the child. Upon opening this slim volume I found it to be radically different from other offerings; the main difference were the parental support notes that suggest ways in which the parent/helper can support the child in assimilating the information and techniques from the book. Each note is specifically written to accompany a particular exercise and this is worth its weight in gold because all too often the parent experiences a lack of confidence in this subject and may be at a loss about how best to support their child's learning. This simple expedient will make a massive difference if only the parent will take the time to support their child in achieving success. A useful tip I found is to colour copy (black and white would do) the pages so that if you have two children they can each get the most from the book. This also allows for repeated attempts at the same exercises. In summary a simple but very effective resource that I can highly recommend. On a very serious note I would contend that we all need to do more to support our children with their literacy and numeracy as although the Moser Report on our attenuation in these areas was written in the 90's we probably haven't made as much progress as we should have in this area. More guides such as this one would help most of us redress the issue.

As an adult the book looked OK, but how did it go down with a needy user. Great surprise, I passed this book onto my son for his daughter, who has been struggling a little with learning her tables. Two days on he informed me that my granddaughter had her nose in the book of her own accord and was bringing it to him for marking. This is fantastic as we have been having a bit of a fight over the times tables, particularly '7' onward. A week on and granddaughter thanked me for getting the book, she liked 'filling it in'.

As any parent of a young child will know, if your little darling doesn't like something it is almost impossible to get them interested in it, be it a TV show, a book or just a plate of food. Even more difficult is to get them interested in something which could be classified as `school work', particularly if the school work in question is the dreaded time tables. Therefore I have to take my hat off to the people who produced this book because my young daughter absolutely loved it, clearly enjoying working her way through it. I suspect that not for a moment did she realise that she was learning, because as far as she was concerned she was just having fun. This book is excellently designed; it is very colourful and looks great and the tests and games are pitched at such a level that they are not too easy for the child to get bored but then again not too difficult that they get frustrated and lose interest. I remember I learned my times tables when I was a lad by repeated repetitions of 'two twos are four, three twos are six etc, etc, etc'. It was boring that way, but learning them with the help of this book certainly isn't. In today's competitive world many parents feel it is there duty to help their offspring get a little extra help with their school work. Books like this must be an excellent way to do this.

Got this to help with tuition. Not exactly theoretical but very useful for practising and as a warm up. Looks at each of the tables (colouring in, simple word problems, picture problems) and there are a few pages of mixed up ones. Useful game at the end. Aimed more at the 7/8 age range rather than 11.
