Does anyone use these books and if so do you rate them. Please tell me yes as I have just ordered £40 worth grin

I have some of the learning workbooks (How to write fiction/poetry, grammar, spelling things like that.) Kids enjoy them and they help reinforce stuff. I'm quite happy with them as an additional resource.

Great for nursery and key stage 1. Some of the key stage 2 books are OK - we use the problem solving ones. Haven't bought any for a while (other than problem solving) as we use other resources now but they were great in the early days. (Mine aren't little any more!)

We tried them for a while but ds wasn't keen - they were visually too bland for him as he prefers a lot going on, but content wise they were fine.

Just used the Mental Maths series for KS2/3 as quick-thinking practice ahead of IGCSE exam. They were good because they fitted in with ds's expectations.

Overall he prefers CGP for the humour grin.

I just ordered one of the nursery ones for DS. I love a good workbook!!

I use the mental arithmetics for ds. We both really like it. Each lesson actually covers a lot so it's quite good.

I recently had a look at the preschool one and I'm going to get it for dd when she's a bit older.
