My son is currently working on the Bonds books 9-10 papers (both maths & English) and the Schofield& Sims mental maths book 3. We try and do some times tables exercises but this is a bit of a hit & miss. What has surprised me though is that his English seems to be much stronger than his maths. His comprehension is pretty good but he needs to increase his vocabulary. I have recently bought the Bonds 11+ how to maths book in the hope that some of the explanation for the maths principles are explained well as I'm struggling to explain some concepts to him. Are there any books that I can get to increase his vocabulary list? He went through a phase of not reading for a while but he just recently started reading for around 15-20mins per day.

Finally, I live in a village called Fetcham, just outside of Leatherhead. My husband works in Epsom & if my son gets a place at SGS then he will be dropped off at the railway station - his train journey will be 8mins

But if he doesn't get a place at SGS then commuting to Wilsons or Wallingford will be a problem as I do not want his total journey being over 1hr (door to door). I am of course being positive & assuming that he will pass the 11+ tests!
