Hi

My daughter has recently lost confidence in solving word based maths problems...e.g.

how long does it take a train....etc

or Julie, Sue, Rose sit two exams of English and Maths....etc etc

Can anyone recommend text books/exam prep books that solely focus on this type of question?

Thanks in advance

My DS likes the Heinemann Word Problems series (year 3, year 4, year 5 etc) - good drawings and a manageable A5 size with 5 questions on each page, gradually increasing in difficulty.
