The level 6 sats paper is not really appropriate for bucks cem (as it was last year) Better to throw problem solving at them in any format you can find, just to get them super quick at finding the sum (which ds2 told me was pretty basic). They need to be able to read and interpret the problems in a silly fast amount of time, this leaves zero time to actually do the calculation, so number bonds and time tables must be lighting speed. (Unlike ds3 who is still not averse to using his fingers bless him
Heineman problem solving level 6 is good, and has seven to ten problems a page so is snappy, it is also handbag sized so you can carry it about and torture them on the move!
I have just ordered the eleven plus essentials cem maths books, so will update on those in a few weeks after some Easter holiday mean mummy lessons.
(choccy eggs as bribery?)
I have also been giving him a page of everything that comes up from comp, to cloze and nvr etc and making him do it all together, swapping from one to the other. Nearer test date I will be chopping up more books, giving him the answer boxes separately and timing him, which he will really hate.
