Hi all,
After 11+, what books would you suggest to buy for my DS to do. We do have Peter Robson 1-5 books. We really like these books. Like this which other books are there to help in maths for secondary school. Please help.

I wouldn't worry; teachers at secondary will advise in time if additional support is needed.

I'd second that. We continued with maths tuition for a while but I think it was only beacuse we had got into the 11+ groove, where of course the maths is different in some cases from the curriculum, and certainly more challenging than what they were doing in KS2. Since starting year 7, both have had no trouble keeping up, even though maths not their favourite subject, this is mainly I think because the class concentrates on a maths subject for however long, rather than the jumping around that is needed for 11+. So, I'd watch and wait, and see how your child is at the end of the first term in Y7/parents evening, and asses then.

If they enjoy maths and want to do more, you could look at past questions on the Primary Maths Challenge papers, or, if they are already a little ahead, the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge (aimed at years 7 and 8). These don't necessarily teach new maths but will get them to think of how to apply the maths they already know.

There is also the nrich website for thinking through longer problems.

If maths is an area of weakness then consolidate basic skills. Schofield and Simms are great for that. If maths is an area of strength then as above NRICH, primary maths challenge or some L6 papers. Reasoning skills would be of more value than more curriculum.
